 for superscalar
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      A superscalar architecture is a uniprocessor
     that can execute two or more scalar operations in parallel.
     Some definitions include superpipelined and VLIW
     architectures; others do not.  Superscalar architectures
     (apart from superpipelined architectures) require multiple
     functional units, which may or may not be identical to each
     other.  In some superscalar processors the order of
     instruction execution is determined statically (purely at
     compile-time), in others it is determined dynamically (partly
     at run time).
