Microprocessor developments during 1984 are reviewed. These include: implementation in CMOS, integration of support functions such as cache memory and memory management on the chip, and execution of instructions at a rate well over 1 million per second for 32-bit microprocessors; applications of high-performance microprocessors to workstations; and the proliferation of UNIX.
