~40 years ago, in June 78, Intel launched the i8086 microprocessor. It is amazing how influential its ISA become over the decades. Each time a new set of instructions tried to take over, it failed to reach the same popular success. Sure, you may like it or not, but x86 is here for a while. What a ride! I will spare you the analogies and other comparisons. Since I could buy the anniversary limited edition of the i7-8086K Intel released to commemorate the event, I could not resist taking a few pictures. I also added the i8087 since the 8086K has an FPU!
