1994/11/01 Elhuyar Zientzia Iturria: Elhuyar aldizkaria

The company Digital Equipement has achieved a new prototype in processors for computers. This new RISC technology processor has been called Alpha and reaches a frequency of 1000 MHz. Therefore, this chip will leave all brands of the competition broken. So far, Intel has announced a frequency of 150 MHz for its Pentium microprocessor, and this news of Digital Equipement has a frequency almost seven times higher, of a gigahercia.

The frequency of microprocessors determines the speed of work in computers and the frequency of a gigahercia is one billion operations per second. However, the following year will see if the prototype obtained now becomes a commercial product.
