Summary : 

Summary The processor has an in creditable history from the tape/punch card era (the 1950s) to the first microprocessor having a processing speed of 740 kHz (the early 1970s) to the present processing speed of 3.6 GHz (2009). I wonder, will the next 60 years have such advancement in processing speed as the last 60 years.
