Modern Processor Design: Fundamentals of Superscalar Processors

Book Description

Conceptual and precise, Modern Processor brings together numerous microarchitectural techniques in a clear, understandable that is easily accessible to both graduate and undergraduate students. Complex practices are distilled into foundational principles to reveal the authors' insights and hands-on experience in the effective design of contemporary high- micro-processors for mobile, desktop, and markets. Key theoretical and foundational principles are presented in a systematic way to ensure comprehension of important implementation issues.

The text presents fundamental concepts and foundational techniques such as processor design, pipelined processors, memory and I/O systems, and especially superscalar and implementations. Two case studies and an extensive survey of actual commercial superscalar processors reveal real-world developments in processor design and performance. A thorough overview of advanced instruction flow techniques, including developments in advanced branch predictors, is incorporated. Each chapter concludes with homework problems that will institute the groundwork for emerging techniques in the field and an introduction to multiprocessor systems.
