Intel boasted this week that it has shipped more one billion x86 processors.
The chip giant cited data from industry analyst firm Mercury Research, which found that, on combined desktop, laptop and server shipments, Intel reached the billion milestone in April.
The mark was reached roughly 25 years after the debut of the first 8086 microprocessor on June 8, 1978.
Mercury Research predicted that the next billion x86 CPUs could ship far more quickly, with the target being reached as early as 2007.
