This is the fourth article in a series that that started in 2000 with The Looming Battle in 64 bit Land, followed by The Battle in 64 bit Land Revisited in 2001, and The Battle in 64 bit Land, 2003 and beyond in 2003.
This is an update of ‘The Looming Battle in 64 bit Land’. The milestones achieved by each of the major players over the past 12 months are reviewed and the near future competitive prospects of the major 64 bit microprocessor families are examined.
Paul DeMone gives a rundown of the interesting papers on microprocessor design from the last ISSCC Conference.
Who are the real players in the 64-bit processor arena? Which company is likely to dominate the 64-bit landscape? In this installment of Silicon Insider, Paul investigates these questions
A Renewed Quest For Architectural Simplicity As is often the case for troubled projects, the initial architects of what evolved into IA-64 started with the best of intentions: researchers at Hewlett Packard Laboratories (HPL) wanted to lead a second RISC revolution. The first RISC revolution, more than a decade earlier, was a reaction to the […]
