In addition to it, just from the point of end user.

In past you could only install HPUX on PA-RISC based Servers.

These days we could install other flavours like linux and windows on IPF platforms.

Most importantly, Integrity (see Venkatesh's link) it is EPIC (explicitly parallel instruction computing) instead of RISC.
