Useful information describing the use of Pipelines in programming. This is very useful if you are learning about optimization and speed of programs. This article does cover pitfalls that can arise in the process such as data dependencies. It may be a little to much for a new programmer but it is something that you need at least some peripheral knowledge of when programming.

Technical Remarks:

Useful and to the point. Easy to follow with supporting information.

steps and x86 translation execution steps.
3. Not very useful
4. Simple to follow.
