Constructed Computer Architectures (Concomps?)

Where does the design of imaginary computer architectures (and programming
languages) stand in the ranks of con-somethinging?
It's probably a highly esoteric question, but that's what I'm doing right
now, instead of conlanging: noodling around with a few programming
language designs that each started off as attempts to create notation
systems for specific problems, and dummying up a few completely
impractical computers to do thought experiments on. At the hazy
borderlines of the two live my thoughs of assembler opcodes and register
sets (etc) for best implementing a given language on one of those
Anyone else ever dug into that sort of stuff?
