The VAX architecture has been extended to include an integrated, register-based vector processor. This extension allows both high-end and low-end implementations and can be supported with only small changes by VAX/VMS and VAX/ULTRIX operating systems. The extension is effectively exploited by the new vectorizing capabilities of VAX Fortran. Features of the VAX vector architecture and the design decisions which make it a consistent extension of the VAX architecture are discussed
