They all work, but the middle one isn't dead, it's just at a different URL; fixed. Guy Harris (talk) 18:19, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Incorrect date in "PRISM" section[edit]

It looks like there is a typo

  "Alpha was born out of a 1995 RISC project named PRISM," 

I am guessing it should be 1985 as later in that section it claims PRISM was canceled in 1988. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:37, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Not to mention that it'd be a bit hard for a microprocessor announced in 1992 to be the result of a 1995 project. I just reverted to calling PRISM "an earlier project"; it wasn't a 1985 project, it started in 1985 and ended in 1988. Guy Harris (talk) 18:07, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
