The term Xputer (the "Anti-Machine") stands for the counterpart of the von Neumann paradigm. The Xputer uses data counters instead of a programm counter. Efficiency is Everything. Von Neumann maximizes computational complexity. That's why Xputers are important since we urgently must go heterogeneous for Cooling off Accelerated Computing.
