CPU DB like IMDB for Microprocessors

If you’re interested in the history of microprocessors, the CPU DB at Stanford is a massive database of microprocessors that covers everything from code names to speed to processor families. Play with their visuals or download the entire database and make your own.


Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    While not a ‘history’ site, I find the CPU World site ( to be indispensable for finding statistics for processors.
