Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"This video paper is presented by John Edmondson, and co-authored by Paul Rubinfeld. The Alpha AXP 21164 microprocessor is the world's highest performance microprocessor. It is the second generation implementation of the Alpha AXP architecture, sustain-ing Digital's position as the performance leader. The key to performance in this chip is improved throughput achieved with 4-way superscalar design, a non-blocking memory subsystem, and a large, high bandwidth on-chip L2 cache, and reduced latency in all functional units."
