This correspondence proposes a model using microcycle and memory read pause times to account for variation in performance between members of a computer family. Wben applied to the DEC PDP-11 and IBM S/360-S/370 families, the model explains over 90 percent of the variation. This model is useful for initial family planning, as well as design of individual family members.
