The TurboSPARC processor is a SPARC v8 compliant microprocessor manufactured by Fujitsu. It was noticeably used at 170 Mhz in the last model of SPARCstation 5 manufactured by Sun Microsystems.

Note that in some of the aforementioned SPARCstation 5 running some version of Solaris, it was possible for some release of gcc to generate an empty infinite loop that would deadlock the machine and requires a power cycle to reboot, as even going to the openboot monitor was impossible. It is unknown if the problem is reproductible under linux. It is unknown if the problem was widespread or only affected some hardware and software release.
