Submission + - CPU DB: Looking at 40 Years of Processor Improvements (

CowboyRobot writes: "Stanford's CPU DB project ( is like an open IMDB for microprocessors.
Processors have come a long way from the Intel 4004 in 1971, with a clock speed of 740KHz, and CPU DB shows the details of where and when the gains have occured.
More importantly, by looking at hundreds of processors over decades, researchers are able to separate the effect of technology scaling from improvements in say, software.
The public is encouraged to contribute to the project."
