Evolution of Microprocessors
Intel Barselona Research Center
Microprocessors evolved tremendously in the past 20 years. The demand for faster processors pushed the designers for more aggressive techniques such as hyper pipelining, superscalar designs, out-of-order execution, multithreading and multi core architectures. In this talk, we'll take a snapshot at the evolution of microprocessors and describe the ideas behind aggressive design choices. We will also talk about the current trends and challenges in the microprocessor design and manufacturing.
