This panel will discuss microprocessor development in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s including the evolution of CISC and RISC architectures and the battle for architectural dominance in the market place.? The technological developments that led up to the creation of RISC architectures and the reaction of CISC suppliers to address this attack with be covered.? The role of architecture in today’s marketplace will be discussed and the panel members will share their views on the factors that lead up to the outcome of these architectural wars.
Note: Space is limited and only the registered guests will be admitted.? Early registration is highly recommended.
