Why 8 bits?
4-bit microprocessors were developed in the early 1970s starting with the Intel 4004. Intel swiftly followed with 8-bit processors, and most competitors to Intel started with 8-bits. This, combined with the performance and memory limitations of the available 4-bit processors, meant that they fell out of commercial application quickly.

8-bit can refer to a style of electronic music inspired by the sound of old computer consoles from the 8 bit era of video games. This music will often reflect sounds from technology that is seen as primitive or "outdated" such as the Game Boy and home made synthesisers.



In computer architecture, 8-bit integers, memory addresses, or other data units are those that are at most 8 bits (1 octet) wide. Also, 8-bit CPU and ALU architectures are those that are based on registers, address buses, or data buses of that size. Eight-bit CPUs normally use an 8-bit data bus and a 16-bit address bus which means that their address space is limited to 64 KiBs. This is not a "natural law", however, so there are exceptions.

The first widely adopted 8-bit microprocessor was the Intel 8080, being used in many hobbyist computers of the late 1970s and early 1980s, often running the CP/M operating system. The Zilog Z80 (compatible with the 8080) and the Motorola 6800 were also used in similar computers. The Z80 and the MOS Technology 6502 8-bit CPUs were widely used in home computers and game consoles of the 70s and 80s. Many 8-bit CPUs or microcontrollers are the basis of today's ubiquitous embedded systems.
There are 28 (256) possible permutations for 8 bits.(in binary)
About 55% of all CPUs sold in the world are 8-bit microcontrollers or microprocessors.
