Also asked, what is the advantage of VLIW architecture?
Instead of having hardware attempt to discoverparallelism, VLIW processors rely on the compiler thatgenerates the VLIW code to explicitly specify parallelism.Relying on the compiler has advantages. First, the compilerhas the ability to look at much larger windows of instructions thanthe hardware.
Also, what is meant by superscalar processor? Superscalar architecture is a method of parallelcomputing used in many processors. In a superscalarcomputer, the central processing unit (CPU) manages multipleinstruction pipelines to execute several instructions concurrentlyduring a clock cycle.
Furthermore, what is VLIW architecture?
Very long instruction word (VLIW) describes acomputer processing architecture in which a languagecompiler or pre-processor breaks program instruction downinto basic operations that can be performed by the processorin parallel (that is, at the same time).
What is super pipelining?
Super-pipelining is the breaking of stagesof a given pipeline into smaller stages (thus making thepipeline deeper) in an attempt to shorten the clock periodand thus enhancing the instruction throughput by keeping more andmore instructions in flight at a time.
