Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach, 4th Edition

By John L. Hennessy, David A. Patterson

The period of possible limitless progress in processor functionality is over: unmarried chip architectures can not triumph over the functionality boundaries imposed by means of the ability they eat and the warmth they generate. this day, Intel and different semiconductor enterprises are leaving behind the one quickly processor version in desire of multi-core microprocessors--chips that mix or extra processors in one package deal. within the fourth version of Computer Architecture, the authors concentrate on this ancient shift, expanding their insurance of multiprocessors and exploring the simplest methods of accomplishing parallelism because the key to unlocking the facility of a number of processor architectures. also, the recent version has multiplied and up-to-date insurance of layout issues past processor functionality, together with energy, reliability, availability, and dependability.
