It's essentially Top Trumps-meets-computer science, and features "30 CPUs from the last forty years [that] have been picked for their contribution to computer history". A single deck of the cards costs $12.79, and that is without doubt some of the best money you will ever spend. [CPU Wars via Boing Boing]
