A new edition of the best-selling title, considered for over a decade to be essential reading for every serious student and practitioner of computer designComputer Architecture has been updated throughout to address the most important trends facing computer designers today. In this edition, the authors bring their trademark method of quantitative analysis not only to high performance desktop machine design, but also to the design of embedded and server systems. They have illustrated their principles with designs from all three of these domains, including examples from consumer electronics, multimedia and web technologies, and high performance computing.
First year graduate students in Computer Architecture. Anyone involved in designing computers or designing with computers, including architects, computer system engineers, and designers of compilers and operating systems.
