UltraSPARC-III (US-III) is a 64 b 800 MHz 4-instruction-issue superscalar microprocessor for high-performance desktop workstation, work group server, and enterprise server platforms. On-chip caches include a 64 kB 4-way associative for data, 32 kB 4-way associative for instructions, a 2 k B 4-way associative data prefetch cache, and a 2 kB 4-way associative write. A 90 kB on-chip tag array supports the off-chip 8 MB unified second-level cache. The 23 M-transistor chip in a 0.15 /spl mu/m, 7-layer metal process consumes 60 W from a 1.5 V supply.
