IBM announced that it was launching a personal computer using an Intel 8088

IBM announced that it was launching a personal computer using an Intel 8088 processor running at 4.77MHz and 16K RAM for 786. The hardware and its MS-DOS operating system were largely out dated even by the standards of 1981 but the sheer size and reputation of IBM ensured that this rapidly became a world wide standard.
