Chips and Technologies Super386 DX25

The Chips & Technologies (C&T) 386 chip is a unique and uncommon thing. It came in both SX and DX models. The designation J38600DX indicates that my CPU is a DX model. In 386-terms a DX works with a 32-bit bus rather than a 16-bit bus. It's unclear if SX versions ever

The Super386 is unique in a way that it is the first reversed engineered 386 made. AMD already shipped 386's but made perfect clones. C&T gave the Super386 a few enhancements but the CPU also had a few problems with compatibility.

The J38600DX (and SX) can fit in a regular 132-pin socket. Keep in mind that the J38605DX (with 512k instruction cache) needs a 144-pin socket and thus requires a special motherboard.
