 Evolution Of Computers:
A Brief History Of ComputersPrepared by Mubeen Ahmed
A Brief History Of Computers 
History reveals a clear pattern in the evolution of computers. Processing powerincreases rapidly after the introduction of the new technology. The rate of growtheventually slows down as the technology is exploited to it’s full potential.While in the background other technologies are nurturing and one ultimatelysupersedes the other to become the dominant technology and this cycle isrepeated.
Under the right conditions the shift to the new technology can lead to possibleincrease in processor speed of hundred to thousand timesElectromechanical ComputerAll- electronic computer with vacuum tubesFully transistorized computerScalable massive parallelism
