Single Instruction, Multiple Data

A computer architecture that allows multiple data streams to be manipulated based on a single instruction stream. Most computers are SISD — single instruction, single data. Pixar's Channel Processor has a SIMD architecture, which allows the four color components of an image to be manipulated at the same time with a single instruction.
