multimedia PC (MPC)

The multimedia personal computer ( MPC), a relic from the early days of multimedia technology, can be used to track the rapid development of PC technology. The MPC was initiated in 1991 by leading computer technology companies. The MPC standard defined the requirements of a personal computer (PC) for multimedia applications at that time. Since the standard was already worked out in 1991, the values defined at that time belong to the past. As a reminder: The MPC standard is based on a 386/486 CPU, with a clock rate of 10 MHz, a RAM of at least 2 megabytes( MB), the hard disk with 30 MB or 100 MB, a CD drive and a VGA graphics card.

Data that no longer have any relation to the present and should only illustrate the rapid development of PC technology.
