The AMD K8 Architecture`

Post by kenc51 » Tue Feb 14, 2006 6:32 pm

I stumbled accross this article.........

It's fairly technical......you'll haveto read parts of this 2 or 3 times.....
But it explains how the AMD64 actually works and why it's so efficient.

Be warned....It may take a while for it to sink in.......

Credit goes to cpuid.com

my goal in life is to someday really understand how cpu's work btw....... :roll:

edit this article is long and technical! ;)

Guys.....I said this was technical !!!!!!

Don't get discouraged if you can't understand it (I don't for the most part)

Try http://www.howstuffworks.com ....then work your way up if you are interested in this stuff......

It's very interesting stuff, once you get the basics.....but head wrecking to get to grasps with... LOL ](*,)
