    During 2021's Intel Innovation event, the company celebrated 50 years since the launch of its first commercial processor - the 4004.

    Back in 1971 that CPU powered what we'd now see as a vintage calculator, the Busicom 141-PF.

    Since then the company's processors sure have changed a lot and microprocessors are now an integral part of almost every bit of technology in our daily lives. We're revisiting some of the most significant Intel CPUs from the last few decades and the changes they've brought to our lives.
