HC Torng (M.S. 1958, PhD. 1960) owns a patent for one of the key technologies which formed the foundation for many modern high-performance processors. The patent was first granted in 1989 to Cornell Research Foundation, covering a technique invented by HC Torng which enables microprocessors to increase processing speed by determining which instructions are not dependent on the results of others. This then allows the processor to execute those out of order, and more instructions to be executed during the same computer clock cycle.
