Technical details are very sparse, but from their presentations, they say they are not VLIW.
They sometimes compare their stuff with Itanium (VLIW), but they claim they don’t stall as much as Itanium. Supposedly it has dynamic issue but it is not out of order. From what I gather, their compiler generates instruction bundles that encode dependencies between instructions. That sounds an awful lot like an EDGE architecture such as the TRIPS and Microsoft’s E2.
