Computer architecture and the ACE computers
This chapter examines the architecture of the ACE computers in the light of developments in computer architecture over the fifty years that followed the birth of ACE. The concept of computer architecture is discussed and the history of the RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer) movement is reviewed. It is argued that a closer inspection of the Pilot ACE and the earlier proposals for the ACE suggests that the ACE's claim to be the first RISC architecture has merit.
