Fifty years of Intel
Introduced in 1992, the Pentium processor was named by Intel employees who entered a companywide contest. Rejected monikers included 586NOT! and Iamfastests. Pentium is derived from the "penta," a Greek word for five. It was a reminder that it was Intel’s fifth-generation microprocessor. While an external branding agency coined the name Pentium, 18 employees who had suggested something very similar each received $200. (Intel Corporation)
