Description

From university Video Communications' catalog:

"This talk traces the evolution of RISC architecture from IBM's original 801 minicomputer, through the RS/6000, to the new PowerPC architecture developed jointly by IBM, Apple, and Motorola. Specifically, the talk describes the motivation behind the features of the PowerPC architecture including addressing, computational instructions, and system issues, and describes why changes were made from the earlier versions of IBM's RISC architectures."
