Instruction/data cache size
FetchUp to eight instructions are fetched into an instruction buffer
DispatchInstructions are dispatched to either the FXU or FPU
DecodeInstructions are decoded, with the source registers being read
Instructions to the FXU are decoded together in the dispatch stage.
ExecuteThis stage exists in the BPU as well as the FXU, where integer instructions execute and cache lookup and address processing also occur
CacheFloating-point operands are sent to the FPU and the integer operands are sent to the FXU.
WriteRegister file write.
