This communication sets an evaluation framework and performs a comparative analysis of the UltraSPARC-III and the IA-64 processor architectures. It starts with an overview of a pure RISC architecture and the new EPIC technology. It then presents the unique combination of innovative features that both manufacturers claim explicit parallelism, predication and speculative loading – and the goals for their architecture design: to be highly scalable to fill the ever-increasing performance…

UltraSPARC-III: designing third-generation 64-bit performance
TLDR
The UltraSPARC-III is the third generation of Sun Microsystems' most powerful microprocessors, which are at the heart of Sun's computer systems and ensures compatibility with all existing SPARC applications and the Solaris operating system.
