[citation][nom]gmcizzle[/nom]Benchmark the 4004 against bulldozer.[/citation]

10,000 nm process vs. 32 nm the win is obviously going to go to the 4004

I thought so, but I just want to be sure AMD has the edge over Intel.

[citation][nom]BlackHawk91[/nom]Let's get back in time: Which is the oldest intel CPU that you currently have laying around? Mine is a not so old Intel 80486DX2[/citation]

486 or 386, I keep forgetting :D Fully functional, just need to solder one of the chips on the VGA card back on. Then Celeron 500 MHz, then Celeron M 900 MHz, then Celeron M 1.8 GHz and then i7-2600 which FINALLY broke the Celeron curse for me :)

Earliest was a Pentium II, not with us any more though. P4's still in service, so is a Pentium M, both roughly the same age i think...

286 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compaq_Portable
Also a 386DX-40 motherboard and nothing else.

Doubt either of them would work without a lot of work.

EDIT - after a bit more research my Compaq has an 8088 processor in it. Ahh, fond memories of that machine. I learned how to program PASCAL on it. Which was a lot more fun then assembly on a Commodore 64.

I have a 286 and Cyrix 386 somewhere.

[citation][nom]resetrsx[/nom]I have a 386DX-100 (100 mhz) in my attic.[/citation]

Sure it wasn't a 486DX-100 (33Mhz * 3)? Not sure Intel made a 386 that went high.

Yeah, it was one of their later 386 models.

Have several dozen old processors still laying around.

From a 8080 to a dual core.

Manage to get an old 286 processor and mother board to work again.
