So the superscalar processor actually has more than one ALUs?


Yes. So a superscalar processor implements instruction level parallelism within one processor. A superscalar processor dispatches multiple instructions to different execution units on the processor per clock cycle. Each execution unit is an execution resource within a single CPU such as an arithmetic logic unit(ALU), a bit shifter, or a multiplier.
