As with our other x86 processor books, this book builds upon and does not duplicate information provided in our books on the previous generation processors. As an example, our Pentium Processor System Architecture book provided a detailed description of the APIC module, while this book only describes differences between the two by: This book helped me understand the basics of computer architecture, and quickly took me on a fun and insightful tour of major bit and bit architectures. I have gained enough understanding from this book to move on to more quantitative treatments of processor by: As with most Computer Architecture books, this book covers a wide range of topics in superscalar out-of-order processor design. But what made this book stand out is a chapter dedicated to discussing advanced instruction flow techniques. The book had a very thorough review of many branch prediction algorithm, various types of target predictors Cited by:   since you want to know about multi-thread processors, modern processor design book will be good for covers most of the thing needed for superscalar construction and also memory system buy for memory a great book is Memory Systems: Cache.

Processor architecture may refer to: Instruction set (also called an instruction set architecture) Microarchitecture; Processor design; This disambiguation page lists articles associated with the title Processor architecture.

Wikipedia Definition: The Instruction Set Architecture, or ISA, is defined as that part of the processor architecture related to programming, including the native data types, instructions, registers, addressing modes, memory architecture, interrupt and exception handling, and external IO.

Processor Architecture Modern microprocessors are among the most complex systems ever created by humans. A single silicon chip, roughly the size of a fingernail, can contain a complete high-performance processor, large cache memories, and the logic required to interface it to external devices. In terms of performance, the processorsFile Size: KB.

Since the first edition of this book was published, much has happened within the industry. The Power PC architecture has appeared and RISC has become a more significant challenger to CISC. The book now includes new material on Power PC, and a complete chapter devoted to . PowerPC (with the backronym Performance Optimization With Enhanced RISC – Performance Computing, sometimes abbreviated as PPC) is a reduced instruction set computer (RISC) instruction set architecture (ISA) created by the Apple–IBM–Motorola alliance, known as C, as an evolving instruction set, has since been named Power ISA, while the old name lives on as a Bits: bit/bit (32 → 64). SPARC (Scalable Processor Architecture) is a and bit processor architecture created by Sun Microsystems. Based on the RISC (reduced instruction set computing) processor, SPARC has become very popular, especially within the server market since it is highly scalable, and in its recent incarnation, the UltraSPARC, can be installed on a main. This book aims to give readers insights into the principles behind the design of academic and commercial secure processor architectures. Secure processor architecture research is concerned with exploring and designing hardware features inside computer processors, features which can help protect confidentiality and integrity of the code and data Author: Jakub Szefer.
