The oldest FPU in my collection is an AM9512DC from 1979.
Made by ... AMD! They should have stuck with it.
It's a similar story to Nvidias first chip which was capable of curved surfaces and sound, now they're putting sound back on-chip to enable HDCP which combines sound and video in an encrypted stream.
How long until they do curved surfaces in hardware again, I wonder?
