ABSTRACT
<p>With just three VLSI parts, Hewlett-Packard's latest workstation class lets designers optimize performance and cost at the system level. Its Hummingbird microprocessor features two-way superscalar execution incorporating two integer units, a floating-point unit, a 1-Kbyte internal instruction cache, an integrated external cache controller, an integrated memory and I/O controller, plus enhancements for little-endian and multimedia applications. Its Artist graphics controller integrates a graphical user interface accelerator, a frame buffer controller, and a video controller on a single chip.</p>
