    Looking to get caught up on current CPU technology

    Anyone have some good links on the history of Intel and AMD's CPUs, all the way to the current models? I'm not looking for detailed specs of every CPU made, but more of a general overview, that includes key CPUs, and any new technology that they they introduced.

    I'd probably start with this article on Wikipedia and then follow links and links inside links.
    And this is the similar article for AMD.

    I was thinking more like this link I found: Intel & AMD Processors
    If that chart only included a lot more of the older processors, that would be great.

    But that wouldn't be fun. I'm pretty sure you can create your from the comprehensive lists at wikipedia above and by looking at the processor specifications.
