Advanced Computer Architecture and Parallel Processing (Google eBook)
Computer architecture deals with the physical configuration, logical structure, formats, protocols, and operational sequences for processing data, controlling the configuration, and controlling the operations over a computer. It also encompasses word lengths, instruction codes, and the interrelationships among the main parts of a computer or group of computers. This two-volume set offers a comprehensive coverage of the field of computer organization and architecture.

Page 4 - Cyber-205, made by Control Data Corporation. These computers are capable of performing hundreds of millions of floating-point operations per second. Pipelined vector processors are surveyed in Chapter 11. Processor Arrays A processor array is a set of identical synchronized processing elements capable of simultaneously performing the same operation on different data. Processor arrays are a second way to implement vector computers. To elaborate on the difference between a pipelined vector processor...
