Intel 8087 - Wikipedia
The sales of the 8087 received a significant boost when IBM included a coprocessor socket on the IBM PC motherboard. Due to a shortage of chips, IBM did not actually offer the 8087 as an option for the PC until it had been on the market for six months. Development of the 8087 led to the IEEE 754-1985 standard for floating-point arithmetic. There were later x87 coprocessors for the 80186 (not used in PC-compatibles), 80286, 80386, and 80386SX processors. Starting with the 80486, the later Intel x86 processors did not use a separate floating point coprocessor; floating point functions were provided integrated with the processor.
