This page is going to discuss the upgrades in Ultra SPARC, and will discuss some issues thereof.

The UltraSPARC processors were designed by Sun Microsystems and implement the SPARC version 9 (sparcv9) architecture. This architecture natively supports 64 bit processing by extending the virtual address space to 64 bits and widening the general purpose registers to 64 bits.
