“IBM to Ship World’s Fastest Microprocessor”

This article is a company produced press release (mostly advertising) about the shipment of the worlds fastest microprocessor at the time that had been produced by IBM. I am using this to drive home points about how many transistors are contained in some new processors and computing devices, as this article claims to contain 1.4 billion transistors in a smaller volumetric area than the first independent transistor.
