The first commercial microprocessor was the Intel 4004. Released in 1971, the 4004 was a 4-bit central processing unit. Since that time, microprocessors have grown to 16-, 32- and 64-bit. They have been integrated into multi-core designs that contain more than one microprocessor core. As of 2004, microprocessors were a $44 billion industry and had all indications of continuing to evolve and grow.
