~**x86** is the most common architecture for desktop and laptop computers. The term became common after the introduction of the Intel 80386, it usually implies binary compatibility with the 32-bit instruction set of the 80386. This may sometimes be emphasized as x86-32 from the 64-bit x86-64. Intel, AMD and others manufacture microprocessors compatible with this standard.
