It's able to crunch multiple instructions per clock cycle, plus the internal pipeline is significantly shorter.
However this gets done - whether it is using future dual-core Opterons, using Opterons with beefed up floating point units that can do twice as many instructions per clock, or using a cluster with twice as many processors - the 40 teraflops level seems to be what Cray, AMD, and now SuSE are striving for.
The mobile AMD Athlon XP processor 1800+ features both QuantiSpeed architecture - claimed to enable more instructions per clock cycle - and PowerNow
The superscalar architecture has a performance advantage because it executes two instructions per clock cycle, bringing higher performance for a given operating frequency.
At the heart of the MPC7447A is a high-speed superscalar PowerPC core that is capable of issuing four instructions per clock cycle (three instructions + branch) into eleven independent execution units.
Targeted at networking applications, the 440GRx processor offers clock speeds up to 667 MHz, with a superscalar architecture that can execute two instructions per clock cycle.
This MIPS64-class processor can execute up to six instructions per clock cycle, into a pipeline that uses in-order issue, out-of-order and dispatch and execution and in-order retirement.
The single chip Efficeon TM8800 is specified as featuring a high performance processor core capable of issuing up to eight internal instructions per clock, an integrated DDR-400 memory interface and an AGP-4X high-speed graphics interface.
