Probably all of the sub-pages (e.g. MIMD) should redirect to Flynn's taxonomy.--aciel 21:15, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

SPMD is not Single Process Multiple Instruction[edit]

This is with reference to SPMD discussion. In no way SPMD should mean Single Process Multiple Instruction. This is because if we use the term Process in place of Program, this would take us to somewhere which is totally different context.

Program is the blueprint of the process or we can say that Program in execution is called process. If we say SPMD to Single Process Multiple Instruction then we mean that all processors are executing the same Process then the question arises how?

The true case is the program, which is common to all the processors under consideration.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

Images, please verify work[edit]

Would anyone care to verify my work here?

12 days and no comment so I put them in the article. Cburnett 03:40, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Modification to definition of Single Instruction, Single Data Stream classification[edit]

An SISD architecture ***may*** implement instruction-level parallelism.

Use of a single instruction stream does not preclude segmentation of an instruction inside a uniprocessor along the stages of the pipeline. [1]

Similarly, use of a single instruction stream with a superscalar uniprocessor may result in two instructions simultaneously (i.e. in parallel execution) undergoing processing within different functional units of the superscalar uniprocessor. [2] Edepa (talk) 18:05, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
