For over 20 years, Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach has been considered essential reading by instructors, students, and practitioners of computer design. The latest edition of this classic textbook is fully revised with the latest developments in processor and system architecture. It now features examples from the RISC-V  ("RISC Five") instruction set architecture, a modern RISC instruction set developed and designed to be a free and openly adoptable standard.  It also includes a new chapter on domain-specific architectures and an updated chapter on warehouse-scale computing that features the first public information on Google's newest WSC. True to its original mission of demystifying computer architecture, the sixth edition of  Computer Architecture: A Quantitative Approach continues its longstanding tradition of focusing on the areas where the most exciting computing innovation is happening, while always keeping an emphasis on good engineering design.
