Product Description: In this monumental new book, Tom Shanley pulls together 15 years of history of Intel's mainline microprocessors, the most popular and important computer architecture in history. Shanley has a keen eye for the salient facts, and an outstanding sense for how to organize and display the material for easy accessibility by the reader. If you want to know what does this bit control, what does that feature do, and how did those instructions evolve through several generations of x86, this is the reference book for you. This is the book Intel should have written, but now they don't have to. -Bob Colwell, Intel Fellow The Unabridged Pentium 4 offers unparalleled coverage of Intel's IA32 family of processors, from the 386 through the Pentium 4 and Pentium M processors. Unlike other texts, which address solely a hardware or software audience, this book serves as a comprehensive technical reference for both audiences. Inside, Tom Shanley covers not only the hardware design and software enhancements of Intel's latest processors, he also explains the relationship between these hardware and software characteristics.As a result, readers will come away with a complete understanding of the processor's internal architecture, the Front Side Bus (FSB), the processor's relationship to the system, and the processor's software architecture. Essential topics covered include: * Goals of single-task and multi-task operating systems * The 386 processor-the baseline ancestor of the IA32 processor family * The 486 processor, including a cache primer * The Pentium processor * The P6 roadmap, P6 processor core, and P6 FSB * The Pentium Pro processor, including the Microcode Update feature * The Pentium II and the Pentium II Xeon and Celeron processors * The Pentium III and the Pentium III Xeon and Celeron processors * The Pentium 4 processor family * The Pentium M processor * Processor identification, System Management Mode, and the IO and Local APICs An at-a-glance table of contents allows readers to quickly find topics ranging from 386 Demand Mode Paging to Pentium 4 CPU Arbitration. The accompanying CD-ROM contains 16 extra chapters.Whether you design software or hardware or are responsible for system maintenance or customer support, The Unabridged Pentium 4 will prove an invaluable reference to the world's most widely used microprocessor chips.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.

4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer.

5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
