It even lasted well into the 90's, but it depends for what. The 80's had 
plenty ofy apps use a blend of asm and C-or-Pascal, while in the 90's 
it became limited to really needy applications (games, demoscene, etc). 
The amount of asm code still being written is shrinking but still somewhat 
present. For example, devel_0_39 has asm code in it.
