I wasn't talking about the Intel implementations of the x86 i expressed myself, but about the x86 in generel.

BTW: Yes the P6 was something else. When you take a closer look at it, it looks a lot like an AMD K6, extended with a load of Cyrix 6x86 core features.

With the PII Intel added a few instructions, which sometimes makes it difficult to tell them apart. For example when you compile anything with GCC to i686, you do not compile for the P6 but the PII.

The Netburst was literally a mistake.
