IntelDX4Intel 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.
