<processor> Essentially an Intel 486DX microprocessor with a 16 kilobyte
The DX4 is the fastest member of the Intel 486 family. 75 and 100MHz versions
are available. At an iCOMP index rating of 435, the 100 MHz DX4 performs up to
50% faster than the 66 MHz Intel DX2. The DX4's clock multiplier allows the
processor to run three times faster than the system clock. This performance is
achieved in part by a 16K on-chip cache (double that of the other 486s). The DX4
has an integrated floating point unit.
Like the other 486s, the DX4 achieves performance through a RISC integer core
that executes frequently used instructions in a single clock cycle (the
Pentium's can execute multiple instructions in a single clock cycle).
Low power consumption has been achieved with SL Technology and a 0.6 micron
manufacturing process, giving 1.6 million transistors on a single chip operating
at only 3.3 Volts.
"IntelDX4" is the entire name, the "486" has been dropped and I am assured that
there is no space in the same.
