In the papers by Dr. Amdahl and Dr. Chen an extremely powerful CPU was described. I would like to illustrate on some problems just how powerful it is, in order to better pinpoint its actual performance. With a CPU of this sort, we had a few problems in the actual design: to be able to get problems or applications in and out of the CPU, and to put the processor into an environment where it is useful.
