It is Intel’s 40 Years Anniversary. They have come a long way since the first chip was created. In the beginning, the first chip was only running at 400 KHz, or 400 thousand Hertz, and it was not even considered a microchip. Today, lo and behold, they have quad (multiple) core running at 2.4 GHz, or 2.4 Billion Hertz. Read the whole history on PCMAG.
