Intel's successor to the Pentium, and is designed to run primarily 32-bit applications, so it is primarily used in servers.
The sixth generation of microprocessor chips from Intel Corp. Each generation of chips is faster and more powerful.
An Intel microprocessor that is more advanced than the Pentium microprocessor.
An Intel 6th generation processor with 32-bit registers, a 64-bit data bus and a 36-bit address bus. The Pentium Pro has the same segmented L1 cache as the Pentium but also includes a 256KB, 512KB or 1MB of L2 cache on a separate die inside the processor package. The Pentium Pro is backwards compatible with the Pentium and can operate in real, protected and virtual real modes.

The Pentium Pro is a sixth-generation x86 architecture microprocessor (P6 core) produced by Intel and was originally intended to replace the original Pentium in a full range of applications, but later, was reduced to a more narrow role as a server and high-end desktop chip. The Pentium Pro was capable of both dual- and quad-processor configurations. It was introduced in a stunningly large, rectangular Socket 8 form factor in November 1995.
