40 years Intel!

Today, Intel celebrates it’s 40th birthday. Exactly On November 15th, 1971,
the first Microprocessor with integrated circuitry has been publicly released.
With 2’300 transistors clocked at initially 108 kHz, later 0.7 MHz, the
processor was able to do 92’600 instructions per second.

Interesting facts about the 4004 and the actual I7-3960X:

4004 i7-3960X Change
Transistors 2’300 2’270’000’000 +9.8×108 %
