Intel 386 processor, made by the Intel Corporation, United States, 1985.
By the mid-1980s the major microchip producer Intel was squeezing more than 100 times more computing power into their microprocessors for personal computers than they had managed to fit into their first commercial chip, the 4004. The Intel 386 was released for sale in 1985, featuring 275,000 transistors. The 32-bit chip was used in some of the most advanced mobile phones of the time, including the influential Nokia 9000 Communicator.
