Hi, this is regarding what you wrote in the section cited (as of MEAP v9):

"This phenomenon is most clearly demonstrated by central processing units (CPUs) that conform to the same instruction set for decades, while radically changing their internal architectures."

Would this be better as: "This phenomenon is most clearly demonstrated by generations of central processing units (CPUs) that conform to the same instruction set for decades while their internal architectures change radically from one generation to the next." ? The current way it's written seems to say that a CPU can change its internal architecture. It was just a little confusing when I read it.

Also in the same paragraph, in the sentence right after that:
... but this is the case: CPUs are full of technologies used to achieve higher computational throughput.

Shouldn't you have a comma instead of a colon between "case" and "CPUs"?
Edit: never mind, I thought it started with "but in this case"
