Alternate names: Pentium, K5, i586

The first video game about 586 CPU was released in 1995.

GT Interactive, Electronic Arts and Activision has published most of these games

Pentium was Intel's CPU while K5 was AMD's equivalent. Pentium MMX was identical to regular Pentium except for the added MMX instruction set.

This was the beginning of vastly differing clock speeds between CPUs in comparison to their actual performance (though Cyrix might've done that earlier, they weren't exactly popular).
