Hi!
In my class I've got a homework to do.
I have to choose a language and talk about it: conditional structures, variables, syntax, etc.
I have chosen FASM. So, I'll use FASM documentation as source to do my research.
If you can help me, please provide me something about x86 language history.
Thanks!

I'll make FASM famous at my school! Smile

i think you could talk about
086 - basics
FPU
286 - 16bit protected mode, few extra opcodes, VM86
386 - 32bit protected mode, paging, many new useful opcodes, prefetch instruction queue (not sure)
pentium - (it should be called 586, but AMD got rights to that name, so Intel had to improvise) speedup, few new instructions, pairing instruction, etc etc.
MMX
SSE
SSE2
AMD3DNow!

this should be more than enough on history imho

This work is being done in portuguese. So, I don't know if it'll be useful for someone.
Besides it's just a cut-down version of FASM documentation written with my own words.
