Images: 35 years of Intel chip design | CNET News.com: "The 8008 microprocessor was twice as powerful as the 4004. Released by Intel in April 1972, the 8008 could process data in 8-bit chunks.
The 8008 chip was designed for Datapoint, a terminal manufacturer in Texas that couldn't pay for it at the end of the contract. To settle, Datapoint granted Intel the rights to the chip, including the instruction set, which Datapoint developed. The instruction set eventually became part of the basis for the x86 architecture behind Intel chips today."
Another example of a control point giveaway.
