    Description

    Four-time winner of the best Computer Science and Engineering textbook of the year award from the Textbook and Academic Authors Association, Computer Organization and Architecture: Designing for Performance provides a thorough discussion of the fundamentals of computer organization and architecture, covering not just processor design, but memory, I/O, and parallel systems. Coverage is supported by a wealth of concrete examples emphasizing modern RISC, CISC, and super-scalar systems.

    The eighth revision has been updated to reflect major advances in computer technology, including multi-core processors and embedded processors. Interactive simulations have been expanded and keyed into relevant sections of text.

    Salient Features

    • Multiple Perspectives: Systems are viewed from both the architectural (attributes of a system visible to a machine language programmer) and organizational (operational units and their interconnections that realize the architecture) perspectives to give students context.
    • Unified Treatment of I/O: Provides full understanding of I/O functions and structures, including two important external interface examples: Fire Wire and In fini Band.
    • Focus on RISC: Students gain a broad understanding of this technology, found in virtually all contemporary machines.
    • Parallel Processors: Exceptionally clear, well-organized treatment of symmetric multiprocessors (SMP), clusters, and NUMA systems.
    • Running Case Studies: Case studies of Intel x86 and embedded ARM architectures supplement and explain material.
    • Microprogrammed Implementation: This technology is given a full treatment, so students gain a complete understanding of processor organization.

    Not for beginners !

    This book is definitely not for beginners. However if you have strong foundation, this book really helps you to improve your skills. This is suited more for a CS 501 course the a CS 201 course. Also make sure you follow the list of errata on the site.
