    I don't remember the late 80s advertisement for a purchased x86-32 486DX and 486SX


      I purchased Pentium 100 MHz.  Then neighbor started waiting for Pentium 133.   Pentium 100 owners are interrogated on school bus for abnormal advancement.

      A POTS (Plain Old Telephone System) BBS admin has a 486DX after waiting 10 days the previous month.  They did not get the SX version.

      After 10 days a huge ad for Pentium version and the offended teenager and parents became angry because return date was not in.


      dx is for general purpose numbers. sx is for stack ptr.


      From technical standpoint, what are listed differences between those two models ?
