In addition to the classic quantitative principles of computer design and performance measurement, the benchmark section has been upgraded to use the new SPEC suite. Our view is that the instruction set architecture is playing less of a role today than in , so we moved this material to Appendix B.
It still uses the MIPS64 architecture. Chapters 2 and 3 cover the exploitation of instruction-level parallelism in high-performance processors, including superscalar execution, branch prediction, speculation, dynamic scheduling, and the relevant compiler technology. As men- tioned earlier, Appendix A is a review of pipelining in case you need it. Chapter 3 surveys the limits of ILR New to this edition is a quantitative evaluation of multi- threading.
While the last edition contained a great deal on Itanium, we moved much of this material to Appendix G, indicating our view that this architecture has not lived up to the early claims. Given the switch in the field from exploiting only ILP to an equal focus on thread- and data-level parallelism, we moved multiprocessor systems up to Chap- ter 4, which focuses on shared-memory architectures. The chapter begins with the performance of such an architecture. It then explores symmetric and distributed-memory architectures, examining both organizational principles and performance.
Topics in synchronization and memory consistency models are. The example is the Sun Tl "Niagara" , a radical design for a commercial product. It reverted to a single-instruction issue, 6-stage pipeline microarchitec- ture. It put 8 of these on a single chip, and each supports 4 threads. Hence, soft- ware sees 32 threads on this single, low-power chip. As mentioned earlier, Appendix C contains an introductory review of cache principles, which is available in case you need it.
This shift allows Chapter 5 to start with 11 advanced optimizations of caches. The chapter includes a new sec- tion on virtual machines, which offers advantages in protection, software man- agement, and hardware management. The example is the AMD Opteron, giving both its cache hierarchy and the virtual memory scheme for its recently expanded bit addresses.
Chapter 6, "Storage Systems," has an expanded discussion of reliability and availability, a tutorial on RAID with a description of RAID 6 schemes, and rarely found failure statistics of real systems. Rather than go through a series of steps to build a hypothetical cluster as in the last edition, we evaluate the cost, performance, and reliability of a real cluster: This brings us to Appendices A through L. As mentioned earlier, Appendices A and C are tutorials on basic pipelining and caching concepts.
Readers relatively new to pipelining should read Appendix A before Chapters 2 and 3, and those new to caching should read Appendix C before Chapter 5.
Appendix E, on networks, has been extensively revised by Timothy M. Pink- ston and Jose Duato. Appendix F, updated by Krste Asanovic, includes a descrip- tion of vector processors. We think these two appendices are some of the best material we know of on each topic. Appendix H describes parallel processing applications and coherence proto- cols for larger-scale, shared-memory multiprocessing.
Appendix I, by David Goldberg, describes computer arithmetic.
Appendix K collects the "Historical Perspective and References" from each chapter of the third edition into a single appendix. It attempts to give proper credit for the ideas in each chapter and a sense of the history surrounding the inventions. We like to think of this as presenting the human drama of computer design. It also supplies references that the student of architecture may want to pursue. If you have time, we recommend reading some of the classic papers in the field that are mentioned in these sections.
It is both enjoyable and educational. Appendix L available at textbooks. There is no single best order in which to approach these chapters and appendices, except that all readers should start with Chapter 1.
If you don't want to read everything, here are some suggested sequences:. Appendix D can be read at any time, but it might work best if read after the ISA and cache sequences.
Appendix I can be read whenever arithmetic moves you. The material we have selected has been stretched upon a consistent framework that is followed in each chapter. We start by explaining the ideas of a chapter.
These ideas are followed by a "Crosscutting Issues" section, a feature that shows how the ideas covered in one chapter interact with those given in other chapters. This is followed by a "Putting It All Together" section that ties these ideas together by showing how they are used in a real machine.
Next in the sequence is "Fallacies and Pitfalls," which lets readers learn from the mistakes of others. We show examples of common misunderstandings and architectural traps that are difficult to avoid even when you know they are lying in wait for you.
The "Fallacies and Pitfalls" sections is one of the most popular sec- tions of the book. Each chapter ends with a "Concluding Remarks" section. Each chapter ends with case studies and accompanying exercises. Authored by experts in industry and academia, the case studies explore key chapter concepts and verify understanding through increasingly challenging exercises.
Instructors should find the case studies sufficiently detailed and robust to allow them to cre- ate their own additional exercises. We hope this helps readers to avoid exercises for which they haven't read the corresponding section, in addition to providing the source for review. Note that we provide solutions to the case study.
Exercises are rated, to give the reader a sense of the amount of time required to complete an exercise:. A second set of alternative case study exercises are available for instructors who register at textbooks. This second set will be revised every summer, so that early every fall, instructors can download a new set of exercises and solutions to accompany the case studies in the book. Additional resources are available at textbooks. The instructor site accessible to adopters who register at textbooks.
New materials and links to other resources available on the Web will be added on a regular basis. Finally, it is possible to make money while reading this book. Talk about cost- performance!
If you read the Acknowledgments that follow, you will see that we went to great lengths to correct mistakes. Since a book goes through many print- ings, we have the opportunity to make even more corrections. If you uncover any remaining resilient bugs, please contact the publisher by electronic mail ca4bugs mkp.
We process the bugs and send the checks about once a year or so, so please be patient. We welcome general comments to the text and invite you to send them to a separate email address at ca4comments mkp.
Once again this book is a true co-authorship, with each of us writing half the chapters and an equal share of the appendices. We can't imagine how long it would have taken without someone else doing half the work, offering inspiration when the task seemed hopeless, providing the key insight to explain a difficult concept, supplying reviews over the weekend of chapters, and commiserating when the weight of our other obligations made it hard to pick up the pen. These obligations have escalated exponentially with the number of editions, as one of us was President of Stanford and the other was President of the Association for Computing Machinery.
Thus, once again we share equally the blame for what you are about to read. Although this is only the fourth edition of this book, we have actually created nine different versions of the text: Along the way, we have received help from hundreds of reviewers and users. Each of these people has helped make this book better. Thus, we have cho- sen to list all of the people who have made contributions to some version of this book.
Like prior editions, this is a community effort that involves scores of volunteers. Without their help, this edition would not be nearly as polished.

Finally, a special thanks once again to Mark Smofherman of Clemson Univer- sity, who gave a final technical reading of our manuscript.
Mark found numerous bugs and ambiguities, and the book is much cleaner as a result. This book could not have been published without a publisher, of course.
Fundamentals of Computer Organization and Architecture
For this fourth edition, we particularly want to thank Kimberlee Honjo who coordinated surveys, focus groups, manuscript reviews and appendices, and Nate McFadden, who coordinated the development and review of the case studies. Our warmest thanks to our editor, Denise Penrose, for her leadership in our continu- ing writing saga.
We must also thank our university staff, Margaret Rowland and Cecilia Pracher, for countless express mailings, as well as for holding down the fort at Stanford and Berkeley while we worked on the book.
Our final thanks go to our wives for their suffering through increasingly early mornings of reading, thinking, and writing. If you don't receive any email, please check your Junk Mail box. If it is not there too, then contact us to info docsity. If even this does not goes as it should, we need to start praying! This is only a preview. Load more. Search in the document preview. Rules of Thumb 1. Bandwidth Rule: Bandwidth grows by at least the square of the improvement in latency.
Dependability Rule: Design with no single point of failure. In Praise of Computer Architecture: Colwell, Intel lead architect "Not only does the book provide an authoritative reference on the concepts that all computer architects should be familiar with, but it is also a good starting point for investigations into emerging areas in the field. You don't need the 4th edition of Computer Architecture'' —Michael D. Smith, Harvard University. Hill, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Hennessy is the president of Stanford University, where he has been a member of the faculty since in the departments of electrical engineering and computer science. He has also received seven honorary doctorates. After com- pleting the project in , he took a one-year leave from the university to cofound MIPS Com- puter Systems, which developed one of the first commercial RISC microprocessors.
After being acquired by Silicon Graphics in , MIPS Technologies became an independent company in , focusing on microprocessors for the embedded marketplace. As of,over million MIPS microprocessors have been shipped in devices ranging from video games and palmtop computers to laser printers and network switches. Patterson has been teaching computer architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, since joining the faculty in , where he holds the Pardee Chair of Computer Sci- ence.
He was also involved in the Network of Workstations NOW project, which led to cluster technology used by Internet companies. These projects earned three dissertation awards from the ACM.
His current research projects are the RAD Lab, which is inventing technology for reli- able, adaptive, distributed Internet services, and the Research Accelerator for Multiple Proces- sors RAMP project, which is developing and distributing low-cost, highly scalable, parallel computers based on FPGAs and open-source hardware and software.

XVI ii Preface gle-processor performance improvement has dropped to modest annual improve- ments. There were many reasons for this change: Topic Selection and Organization As before, we have taken a conservative approach to topic selection, for there are many more interesting ideas in the field than can reasonably be covered in a treat- ment of basic principles.
An Overview of the Content Chapter 1 has been beefed up in this edition. Appendix D, updated by Thomas M. Conte, consolidates the embedded mate- rial in one place.

Because technologists predict much higher hard and soft error rates as the industry moves to semiconductor processes with feature sizes 65 nm or smaller, we decided to move the basics of dependabil- ity from Chapter 7 in the third edition into Chapter 1.
We felt that the embedded material didn't always fit with the quantitative evaluation of the rest of the material, plus it extended the length of many chapters that were already running long.
