Intel i486 DX2/50

Made in week 28 of 1994 which makes it a somewhat late 486 DX2/50. In that time-frame the Pentium 90 was Intel's flagship and running a DX/2 66MHz, DX/2 80 or even DX/4 100MHz made more sense in 1994. However, these 50MHz parts usually run fine at 66MHz and this particular example even booted up at 80MHz without hassle :).

Looking at time-frames it's interesting to see how scattered the early 90'ies were. In my database you can find both 286 and 486SX25 CPU's dated 1991. 1992 went on with 25MHz 286 and 386 CPU's but also provided the 486DX50. Performance between the slowest and fastest CPU is huge!
