  • About the Edition

    This lecture presents a study of the microarchitecture of contemporary microprocessors. The focus is on implementation aspects, with discussions on their implications in terms of performance, power, and cost of state-of-the-art designs. The lecture starts with an overview of the different types of microprocessors and a review of the microarchitecture of cache memories. Then, it describes the implementation of the fetch unit, where special emphasis is made on the required support for branch prediction. The next section is devoted to instruction decode with special focus on the particular support to decoding x86 instructions. The next chapter presents the allocation stage and pays special attention to the implementation of register renaming. Afterward, the issue stage is studied. Here, the logic to implement out-of-order issue for both memory and non-memory instructions is thoroughly described. The following chapter focuses on the instruction execution and describes the different functional units that can be found in contemporary microprocessors, as well as the implementation of the bypass network, which has an important impact on the performance. Finally, the lecture concludes with the commit stage, where it describes how the architectural state is updated and recovered in case of exceptions or misspeculations. This lecture is intended for an advanced course on computer architecture, suitable for graduate students or senior undergrads who want to specialize in the area of computer architecture. It is also intended for practitioners in the industry in the area of microprocessor design. The book assumes that the reader is familiar with the main concepts regarding pipelining, out-of-order execution, cache memories, and virtual memory.

In this book, whenever the term K8 or Hammer is used, it applies to all processors based on this microarchitecture. If a specific processor is named, like AMD OpteronTM, that reference only applies to that processor .

    This is a list of microarchitectures based on the ARM family of instruction sets designed by ARM Holdings and 3rd parties, sorted by version of the ARM instruction set, release and name. ARM provides a summary of the numerous vendors who implement ARM cores in their design. Keil also provides a somewhat newer summary of vendors of ARM based processors. ARM further provides a chart . foundation of the Intel® Xeon® processor and series) builds on these earlier microarchitectural marvels, rewriting the book on processor scalability, perfor-mance, and energy efficiency. The first chapter is all about scalability. Intel® microarchitecture (Nehalem) is a dynamically scalable and design-scalable microarchitecture.

    And, this allows you to build more expensive or less expensive versions of the same processor. So, let's talk about the history of why we came up with these two differentiations between architecture and microarchitecture. And, it came about, because software is sort of, pushed it on us and ended up being a nice abstraction layer. Copyright © Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. 82 UNN Figure 1.

Michel Dubois, Summary. CHAPTER OVERVIEW. The processor and its instruction set are the fundamental components of any architecture because they drive its functionality. In some sense the processor is the “brain” of a computer system, and therefore understanding how processors work is essential to.

A Rundown of x86 Processor Architecture What Is a Microarchitecture? A microarchitecture (sometimes written as "micro-architecture") is the digital logic that allows an instruction set to be executed. It is the combined implementation of registers, memory, arithmetic logic units, multiplexers, and any other digital logic blocks.This book is intended to serve as a textbook for a second course in the im plementation (Le.

microarchitecture) of computer architectures. The subject matter covered is the collection of techniques that are used to achieve the highest performance in single-processor machines; these techniques center the exploitation of low-level parallelism (temporal and spatial) in the processing of machine.White Paper: Describes the basic operation and function of platform ingredients and critical support components used in three classes of Intel® architecture platforms, including the Intel® Atom™ and Intel® Core™ processors.
