Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"The Alpha architecture is a RISC architecture designed for high-performance and longevity. Sites and Meyer distinguish between the architecture as a paper document, describing the behavior of all Alpha implementations as seen by the machine-language programmer, and the various (chip) implementations. This talk highlights the architectural goals, distinctive features of the architecture, and some first implementation details of the Digital 21064 chip."
