4 multi-core architectures • this lecture is about a new trend in computer architecture: replicate multiple processor cores on a single die core 1 core 2 core 3 core 4.
Multicore architectures week 1, lecture 2 multicore landscape – examples: intel, ibm, sun, amd, and so on • itanium processors are based on the concept of vliw (very long instruction word) – each instruction is a 128-bit word composed of four. Today, the intel x86 is arguable the only chip which retains cisc architecture this is primarily due to advancements in other areas of computer technology the price of ram has decreased dramatically in 1977, 1mb of dram cost about $5,000 by 1994, the same amount of memory cost only $6 (when adjusted for inflation.
• eg, intel core i7, amd athlon, ibm power, arm, intel itanium • in contrast to application-specific chips • or asics (application specific integrated circuits. For desktops, the intel® core™ processor family offers the smartest and fastest processors from intel adapting to the needs of users, the technology inside the latest intel® core™ processor family is designed to automatically adjust to shifting performance demands while reducing power consumption.
Intel itanium arcgitecture jointly the itanium is also called ia-64 (intel architecture 64 bit processor) uses 64-bit registers and performs 64-bit arithmetic and logic operations (figure 1.
