Cpus are really fascinating for computers fans : it is central piece of every PC, and so, the most important.
However, this enthusiasm for cpus faslty disapear once they're a little old : last released cpus are admirated, but oldest are subjects of jeerings. Because, the symbol of power that cpus represents, grows old very bad.
And that's why, there are only a few people who collects cpus, unlike stamps, coins or even beer bottle caps...
Nevertheless, it is far from being without interest, because of large number of different models, because of their difference and because of their very fast evolution : the oldest cpus, Intel 4004 was released 50 years ago, and the first x86, the 8086 in 1978, but they have quite no common points with the latest Core i9 or Ryzen...
This site is trying, on the first hand, to enumerate all different existing models of x86 cpus (see Search menu), to make you discover their history, their characteriscs and their visual or electronical specificities (see History menu), and on the other hand to put online different collector's collection, with now 21043 different cpus.
The website menu has been improved to be more readable, by separating x86s from other architectures. Indeed, there was so much different manufacturers of different kind of chips, that the menu went too big for an normal display (I mean, full HD) and it was mandatory to divide it.
Also, Peripherals & Support" chips database menu access has been added.

Opening for collectors for support and peripherals chips, allowing them to add it in their collections.
We start with MCS-4 & MCS-40 families.
MCS-80, MCS-85 & MCS-86 families will follow soon.
Informations displayed for each chips of the database are still in beta testing : they could be updated or increased in the future.

Site lists now all Floating Point Units (FPU) which were used in combination with x86 cpus. They can be browsed using the "All x86 cpus" menu.
