I was mod for the online resource 8052.com (now 8052mcu.com) for more than 20 years. Made many friends there, and learned the 8052 inside out. And yes, Silabs and others are still making very fast silicon based on the core.

And Intel processors are apparently configured internally by embedded 8052 cores - because the guy responsble for desgning them was a member of our site.
