2 Development of processor architecture
Main processor development and production companies, creating a new processors to the various market segments, are seeking: enhance its performance; to reach this goul they: increase clock frequency use a variety of microarchitecture enhancements move to multi-core microarchitectures reduce energy consumption 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius ©S.Maciulevičius 2

3 Word length: from 32 to 64 bits
32-bit processor can do operations over integers to 232 or 4.3 billion 64-bit processor’s facilities reach 264 or round 18.4 quintillion (18,400,000,000,000,000,000); 32-bit processors and operating systems can support up to 4 gigabytes of memory, including only 2 gigabytes for applications; CAD/CAM and scientific calculations this is not enough at present 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius ©S.Maciulevičius 3

4 Data in processors Data type Register set Functional unit x86 word x86-64 word Integers GPR ALU 32 64 Addresses ALU or AGU Floating point numbers FPR FPU Vectors VR VPU 128 As can be seen, but differs only length of integers and addresses 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius ©S.Maciulevičius 4

5 x86-64 specification The x86-64 specification was designed by Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) as an extension of the x86 instruction set It allows far larger virtual and physical address spaces than x86, doubles the width of the integer registers from 32 to 64 bits, increases the number of integer registers, and provides other enhancements 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius ©S.Maciulevičius 5

6 Intel® EM64T Intel has released their “64-bit technology” in order to compete with AMD’s 64-bit technology Intel EM64T enhances system performance enabling access more than 4 GB memory Intel EM64T supports: 64-bit virtual address space 64-bit pointers 64-bit general purpose registers 64-bit integers 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius ©S.Maciulevičius 6

7 EM64T (and x86-64) registers 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius ©S.Maciulevičius 7

8 Multi-core processors
Increase the frequency towards increasing performance, becoming more and more difficult Instead, the companies have focused their efforts to increase the parallelism - developed dual-core processors, later moving to a multi-core processors This way follow Intel, AMD, Motorola, Sun and other companies 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius ©S.Maciulevičius 8

9 Intel Core microarchitecture summary

10 Intel Nehalem microarchitecture
Nehalem is the codename for an Intel processor microarchitecture, successor to the Core microarchitecture The first processor released with the Nehalem architecture was the desktop Core i7, which was released in November 2008. Nehalem differs radically from Netburst. Nehalem-based microprocessors use higher clock speeds and are more energy-efficient. Hyper-threading is reintroduced, along with a reduction in L2 cache size, as well as an enlarged L3 cache that is shared by all cores 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius ©S.Maciulevičius 10

11 Intel Nehalem microarchitecture
64 KB L1 cache/core (32 KB L1 Data + 32 KB L1 Instruction) and 256 KB L2 cache/core 4–12 MB L3 cache Native (all processor cores on a single die) quad- and octa-core processors Intel QuickPath Interconnect in high-end models replacing the legacy front side bus Integration of PCI Express and DMI into the processor, replacing the northbridge Integrated memory controller supporting two or three memory channels of DDR3 SDRAM or four FB-DIMM2 channels Second-generation Intel Virtualization Technology 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius ©S.Maciulevičius 11

13 Intel’s strategy Intel introduces new microprocessor architectures every 2 years as part of “Tick-Tock” strategy: 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius

14 Intel’s Sandy Bridge Sandy Bridge is the codename for a microarchitecture developed by Intel beginning in 2005 for CPUs in computers to replace the Nehalem microarchitecture It was designed for the full range of applications from mobile devices, laptop and desktop computers, to large enterprise servers Intel demonstrated a Sandy Bridge processor in 2009, and released first products in January 2011 based on the architecture . 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius

15 Intel’s Sandy Bridge Sandy Bridge main features:
32 nm fabrication process CPU clock rate 1.4–3.4 GHz, grafics clock rate  MHz (for different models) Turbo Boost 2.0 technology enables rise of clock rate till 3.8 GHz and 1350 MHz respectively 32 kB data + 32 kB instruction L1 cache (3 clocks) and 256 kB L2 cache (8 clocks) per core Shared L3 cache – 3-8 MB (25 clocks) . 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius

16 Intel’s Sandy Bridge Sandy Bridge has integrated graphic controller and specialized accelerator; it accelerates multimedia content processing significantly   Sandy Bridge supports DirectX 10.1 and OpenCL 1.1; its productivity far exceeds the performance of the first generation Core Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) 256-bit instruction set with wider vectors, new extensible syntax and rich functionality . 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius

17 Intel’s Sandy Bridge Decoded micro-operation cache and enlarged, optimized branch predictor 256-bit/cycle ring bus interconnect between cores, graphics, cache and System Agent Domain Intel Quick Sync Video, hardware support for video encoding and decoding Up to 8 physical cores or 16 logical cores through Hyper-threading TDP of desktop CPUs is 35–95 W, for mobile CPUs –17-55 W . 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius

20 Sandy Bridge: L0 cache . 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius

21 Sandy Bridge: ring bus Each core, each slice of L3 (LLC) cache, the on-die GPU, media engine and the system agent all have a stop on the ring bus The bus is made up of four independent rings: a data ring, request ring, acknowledge ring and snoop ring. Each stop for each ring can accept 32-bytes of data per clock . 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius

22 Intel’s Ivy Bridge Ivy Bridge is the first chip to use Intel's 22nm tri-gate transistors, which help scale frequency and reduce power consumption At a high level Ivy Bridge looks a lot like Sandy Bridge Ivy Bridge is considered a tick from the CPU perspective but a tock from the GPU perspective 2014 ©S.Maciulevičius
