Dear Readers,

It is with great pleasure that I announce a new article is online. John Mashey, an industry veteran from MIPS & SGI originally authored several posts in comp.arch discussing the VAX architecture. With his permission, I have edited and augmented his articles and the first is being released today.

A Historical Look at the VAX: The Economics of Microprocessors [Part I] can be found at:

I'd like to thank John for allowing us to reprint this article, and also the many other experts who gave us input on this series of articles. The second and third parts will follow, with an interruption due to ISSCC 2006 coverage.
