Encyclopedia > I686

i686 is the name given to the similar instruction sets used by several Intel and Intel-compatible microprocessors. It is not an official Intel name but a shorthand derived from the processors being 2 generations on from Intel's i486 instruction set, which was the last to use that nomenclature officially. The name is often used when configuring compilers.

How Linux platforms are switched, i386 to i686 ? | tuxmachines.org (768 words)
Since the console is the operating system, the entire operating system is restricted to i686 ascii codes.
So, the compiling to i686 platform has to examine the real cpu you are using, with the underpining instructions you need for maximum speed.
To set speed, up to i686, all the applcations had to be using ascii codes with i686 instructions.
