64 bit processing
Extended address bus to 64 bit (EDB was already 64 bit), which allows up to 16 EB of ram. General purpose registers also increased to 64 bit.
Processing methodology where multiple calculations take place simultaneously by being broken into a series of steps. Often used in CPUs and video processors.
