The Unabridged Pentium four bargains exceptional insurance of Intel's IA32 relations of processors, from the 386 throughout the Pentium four and Pentium M processors. not like different texts, which handle exclusively a or software program viewers, this booklet serves as a finished technical reference for either audiences. within, the Mindshare running shoes conceal not just the layout and software program improvements of Intel's most modern processors, additionally they clarify the connection among those and software program features.
As a outcome, readers will come away with an entire realizing of the processor's inner structure, front part Bus (FSB), the processor's dating to the procedure, and the processor's software program structure.
Essential themes lined contain:
Goals of single-task and multi-task working platforms The 386 processor—the baseline ancestor of the IA32 processor relatives The 486 processor, together with a cache primer The Pentium processor The P6 roadmap, P6 processor middle, and P6 FSB The Pentium seasoned processor, together with the Microcode replace characteristic Pentium II and the Pentium II Xeon processors Pentium III and Pentium III Xeon processors The Pentium four processor relations The Pentium M processor Processor identity, method administration Mode, and the IO and native APICs An "at-a-glance" desk of contents permits readers to quick locate subject matters starting from 386 call for Mode Paging to Pentium four CPU Arbitration. An accompanying CD-ROM includes extra ebook fabric.
Whether you layout software program or or are liable for approach upkeep or customer service, The Unabridged Pentium four will end up a useful connection with the world's most generally used microprocessor chips.
