TMX 1795: the first, forgotten microprocessor


 


The first microprocessor, the TMX 1795 had the same architecture as the 8008 but was built months before the 8008. Never sold commercially, this Texas Instruments processor is now almost forgotten even though it had a huge impact on the computer industry. In this article, I present the surprising history of the TMX 1795 in detail, look at other early processors, and explain why the TMX 1795 should be considered the first microprocessor.

I think Bell Labs and DARPA had Turing complete processors before TI and Intel but I'm not certain
