Parallel Operations

The 360/195 CPU was divided into 5 separate units:

This allowed the 360/195 to overlap and process 7 different operations at the same time. Each processor units operated concurrently and each could perform several operations simultaneously. For example, the floating-point processor could handle up to two additions and a multiplication at one time, markedly reducing the time required to execute instructions and process information.
