  Intel i960 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Intel's i960 (or 80960) was a RISC-based microprocessor design that became quite popular during the early 1990s as an embedded microcontroller, for some time likely the best-selling CPU in that field, pushing the AMD 29000 from that spot.
Intel attempted to bolster the i960 in the I/O device controller market with the I2O standard, but this had little success and the design work was eventually ended.
In 1990 the i960 team was redirected to be the "second team" working in parallel on future i386 implementations — specifically the P6 processor, which later became the Pentium Pro.

 Intel i860 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The i860 was (along with the i960) one of Intel's first attempts at an entirely new, high-end ISA since the failed Intel i432 from the 1980s.
It was released with considerable fanfare, and obscured the release of the Intel i960 which many considered to be a better design.
Intel for a time tested the viability of the i860 as a workstation CPU, competing with the MIPS Architecture chips and others.

 A Gathering Place: Intel i960 & JT Processors
Intel's continuous investment in technology enables the latest member of the i960 processor family, the JT-100, to set a new level of performance and upgradability.
The i960® JT processor, the newest member of Intel's i960 processor family, brings the performance benefits of 100 MHz speed combined with a 16 Kbyte instruction cache to further enhance performance.
The i960 JT processor is 100 percent socket and code compatible with the entire i960 Jx series processors, so it's easy to migrate from the entry level 16 MHz all the way to the new JT-100.

The 80186 was an improvement on the Intel 8086 and Intel 8088.
The Intel 8086 was based on the design of the Intel 8080 and Intel 8085 (it was source compatible with the 8080) with a similar register set, but was expanded to 16 bits.
Intel bubble memory was on the market for a while, but faded away as better and cheaper memory technologies arrived.

Intel 486DX Microprocessor - In 1989, the 32-bit 486DX heralded Intel's fourth generation of microprocessors with two radical innovations: the integration of the floating-point unit (FPU) on the same chip and the addition of an internal write-through 8-Kbyte memory cache.
Intel 486DX2 Microprocessor - As the quest for the computation crown continued into Intel's fourth generation of microprocessors, the 486 family grew with the use of internal clock doublers and triplers, creating the then-"speed demon" DX2s and DX4s.
Intel 486SX Microprocessor - While the 80486 (DX version) is basically an enhanced 386 with an internal cache and math coprocessor, the Intel 486SX is the "economy model" lacking the math processor and internal cache.

 Intel(R) i960(R) Rx I/O Processors - Hardware Design Support FAQ
The i960® RP/RD microprocessor is not supported by Intel to run in a 3.3 volt PCI signaling environment.
The issue is due to the fact that the V_in high has a minimum value of 2.0 volts for the i960® RP/RD microprocessor, which does not comply with the V_in high minimum of 1.65 volts as specified by the 3.3 volt PCI specification.
Intel is currently working to add 3.3 V signaling capability to this device.

 Intel® i960(R) RP/RD I/O Processors Product Brief
Intel's family of I/O processors, the 80960RP and RD, build on the established performance of Intel's 80960 RISC architecture and also encompass industry initiatives, including PCI and I2O*, to effectively offload host CPUs of I/O processing chores.
The 33 MHz i960® RP and 66 MHz i960 RD I/O processors are single-chip solutions which support the I2O specification for standardized Intelligent I/O. The combination of an Intel I/O processor and the I2O architecture provide the framework to allow for significantly enhanced I/O and system level performance.
The i960 RP/RD I/O processor is a highly integrated device incorporating the Jx RISC processor core, a PCI-PCI bridge, an I2C interface for system management features, two DMA controllers as well as several other peripherals required to meet server performance requirements.

Intel is a founding member of the I2O special interest group (SIG), which counts more than 90 companies as members, up from the original 40 at the group's founding a year ago this month.
The new i960 RD I/O microprocessor also extends Intel's aging i960 architecture which some industry observers have contended Intel is gradually withdrawing from the market (EN, Jan. 27).
The i960 RD is the second in a planned series of I/O processors and is aimed at applications such as Web servers, database servers, intranet servers and similar applications.

 Great Microprocessors of the Past and Present (V 13.4.0)
The i960 was retargeted at the high end embedded market (it included multiprocessor and debugging support, and strong interrupt/fault handling, but lacked MMU support), while the 860 was intended to be a general purpose processor (the name 80860 echoing the popular 8086).
Like the Intel i860 (Intel's results from the initial joint project), PRISM could dispatch a single integer, or one integer and one floating point instruction per cycle, but in PRISM this was indicated by a bit in the integer instruction (similar to the TMS320C6x DSP) rather than a separate mode.
In direct response to Intel's MMX instructions, AltiVec extensions were introduced with fourth generation (G4, September 1999) PowerPC CPUs from Motorola (IBM initially declined to support the extensions, until agreeing to become a second source of AltiVec CPUs for Apple Macintoshes).

Intel is jumping on the bandwagon, and so is the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) which has formed a consortium--within the MIT Media Laboratory consortium--devoted to development of smart toys.
Intel's involvement with the MIT Media Labs toy development project is a classic example of the way that Intel constantly works to create new markets for its microprocessors.
Intel does not want to get involved in this low-margin business, so Intel's strategy is to bring the toy to the PC where games, songs, music and stories can be downloaded via the Internet onto the toy.

 Embedded Processors, Part One ExtremeTech - Find Articles
Intel i960 Overview The i960 was once the best-selling RISC architecture on the planet, bar none.
The chip's fault-tolerant features were simply never mentioned in Intel's promotional literature and customers were left to wonder why the chip was so big and had so many pins labeled "no connect." Over the years, Intel eventually excised most of the superfluous features, trimming later i960 chips down to size.
By the mid-1990s the i960 line could be relied on to deliver the worst price/performance ratio of any 32-bit processor--including the miserable x86.
