EV79 would have been the last update of the Alpha architecture but has now been killed off in favor of the less ambitious EV7z. Would have been made in a 130 nm SOI process with a die size of 300 mm2 and run at above 1.6 GHz .

2004 Alpha 21464 EV8 Also known as Arana, EV8 or "by far the most aggressive speculative out-of-order execution superscalar RISC processor yet proposed". To include SMT or Simultaneous Multi-Threading. Built on 0.13 um technology at over 1500 MHz. Now canceled while some EV8 technologies will be used in Itanium.
