        The CVAX chip was the second-generation VLSI VAX microprocessor, offering 2.5 - 3.5 times the power of its predecessor. It was DIGITAL's first internally manufactured CMOS microprocessor. High performance came from features such as macro-instruction prefetch, micro-instruction pipeline, 1kb onchip datacache and a 28 entry onchip translation buffer.
