- 6501 — (hardware) An eight-bit microprocessor, the first sold by MOS Technology. The 6501 pin-compatible with the Motorola 6800 and was the first member of the 650x series. It had an on-chip clock oscillator. See also 6502.
- 6502 — (hardware) An eight-bit microprocessor designed by MOS Technology around 1975 and made by Rockwell. Unlike the Intel 8080 and its kind, the 6502 had very few registers. It was an 8-bit processor, with 16-bit address bus. Inside was one 8-bit data register (accumulator), two 8-bit index registers and an 8-bit stack pointer (stack was preset from address 256 to 511). It used these index and stack registers effectively, with more addressing modes, including a fast zero-page mode that accessed memory locations from address 0 to 255 with an 8-bit address (it didn't have to fetch a second byte for the address). Back when the 6502 was introduced, RAM was actually faster than CPUs, so it made sense to optimise for RAM access rather than increase the number of registers on a chip. The 6502 was used in the BBC Microcomputer, Apple II, Commodore, Apple Computer and Atari personal computers. Steve Wozniak described it as the first chip you could get for less than a hundred dollars (actually a quarter of the 6800 price). The 6502's indirect jump instruction, JMP (xxxx), was broken. If the address was hexadecimal xxFF, the processor would not access the address stored in xxFF and xxFF + 1, but rather xxFF and xx00. The 6510 did not fix this bug, nor was it fixed in any of the other NMOS versions of the 6502 such as the 8502. Bill Mensch at Western Design Center was probably the first to fix it, in the 65C02. The 6502 also had undocumented instructions. The 65816 is an expanded version of the 6502. There is a 6502 assembler by Doug Jones <[email protected]> which supports macros and conditional features and can be used for linkage editing of object files. It requires Pascal. See also cross-assembler, RTI, Small-C.
- 650x — (hardware) A family of microprocessors from MOS Technologies, based on the design of the Motorola 6800 (introduced around 1975). The family included the 6502 used in several early personal computers.
- 6510 — (processor) A successor to the 6502. The 6510 was used in the Commodore 64C. Successors included the 8502 used in the Commodore 128 line.

- 6.001 — (education) /siks dub*l oh wun/, /dub*l oh wun/ or rarely /siks dub*l oh fun/ MIT's introductory computer class for majors, known for its intensity. Developed by Gerald Sussman and Hal Abelson, the course is taught in Scheme and introduces recursion, higher-order functions, object-oriented programming and much more. Students who grasp the metacircular interpreter gain entry into the Knights of the Lambda-Calculus. 6.001 has been exported to several other colleges, sometimes successfully. The textbook, "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs", written with Julie Sussman is a classic that can be found on the shelves of many computer scientists, whether they took the course or not. Legendary characters from the class, problem sets, and book include the wise Alyssa P. Hacker, Ben Bitdiddle, Lem E. Tweakit and Eva Lu Ator, the careless Louis Reasoner and Captain Abstraction.
- 65816 — (processor) An expanded version of the 6502, with which it is compatible. It has 16-bit index registers and stack pointer, a 16-bit direct page register and a 24-bit address bus. Used in later models of the Apple II.
- 68000 — Motorola 68000
- 68020 — Motorola 68020
- 68030 — Motorola 68030

- 64-bit — (architecture) A term describing a computer architecture based around an ALU, registers and data bus which are 64 bits wide. 64-bit processors were quite common in 1996, e.g. Digital Alpha, versions of Sun SPARC, MIPS, IBM AS/4000. the PowerPC and Intel were expected to move to 64 bits at their next generation - PPC 620 and Intel P7. A 64-bit address bus allows the processor to address 18 million gigabytes as opposed to the mere 4 gigabytes allowed with 32 bits. There were in 1996 already hard disks which can hold over 4GB. Floating point calculations can also be more accurate. A 64-bit OS is needed as well to take advantage of the CPU. In 1996 there were only a few 64-bit operating systems, including OS/400, Digital Unix, Solaris (partialy). A 32-bit OS can run on a 64-bit CPU.
- 68hc11 — Motorola 68HC11
