An architecture for improving computer performance is presented and discussed. The main feature of the architecture is a high degree of ._-.-. decoupling between operand access anb execution. This results in an implementation which has two separate instruction streams that communicate via queues. A similar architecture has been previously proposed for array processors, but in that context the software is called on to do most of the coordination and synchronization between the instruction… Expand
