The application trends and key design tradeoffs involved in the design of high performance microprocessors are discussed. In particular the growing importance of improved human interface technology and the need for high-performance, highly-connected systems combined with the need to continue to drive costs lower make design choices very difficult. Technical innovation in the areas of high bandwidth processor-memory interfaces, low-cost multiprocessors and software compatibility are needed in order to continue move forward
