Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach, 4th Edition

Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach, 4th Edition

John L. Hennessy, David A. Patterson


The period of probably limitless development in processor functionality is over: unmarried chip architectures can not conquer the functionality obstacles imposed by way of the ability they eat and the warmth they generate. this present day, Intel and different semiconductor organisations are forsaking the one quickly processor version in want of multi-core microprocessors--chips that mix or extra processors in one package deal. within the fourth variation of Computer Architecture, the authors specialize in this old shift, expanding their insurance of multiprocessors and exploring the simplest methods of attaining parallelism because the key to unlocking the ability of a number of processor architectures. also, the recent version has accelerated and up to date insurance of layout subject matters past processor functionality, together with energy, reliability, availability, and dependability.
