Comment MAJC missing? (Score 2, Interesting) 275

And what sort of thorough article would this be in missing out Sun Microsystems' MAJC chip from the 1990s ?

Promised to accelerate JAVA instructions, the chip was a multithreading multicore design (can you say Niagara?) but Sun couldn't get it to market fast enough and advances in general purpose CPUs left it for dead.

Sadly MAJC only made it into two models of Suns own-brand graphics cards before it was dropped, though it's design principles live on in Niagara and Rock.
