HASWELL MICROARCHITECTURE PDF

SST-enabled SKUs come with additional controls that allow system administrators to change the turbo and base frequencies of certain cores. Those cores called prioritized cores can then have certain applications with higher priority affinitized to them. This can be furthered improved by reducing the frequencies of lower-priority cores below their pre-defined base frequencies. In other words, SST allows for higher performance for priority workloads through the sacrifice of lower-priority workloads. NFV SKUs also feature speed select profiles with configurable priority based on the kind of workloads that are running.

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5 6 Over the last 5 years, high performance microprocessors have changed dramatically. In the context of semiconductors, integration is an ever-present fact of life, reducing system power consumption and cost and increasing performance. The latest incarnation of this trend is the System-on-a-Chip SoC philosophy and design approach. SoCs have been the preferred solution for extremely low power systems, such as 1W mobile phone chips. However, high performance microprocessors span a much wider design space, from 15W notebook chips to W server sockets and the adoption of SoCs has been slower because of the more diverse market.

However, Sandy Bridge largely targets conventional PC markets, such as notebooks, desktops, workstations and servers, with a smattering of embedded applications.

The 32nm Sandy Bridge CPU introduced AVX, a new instruction extension for floating point FP workloads and fundamentally changed almost every aspect of the pipeline, from instruction fetching to memory accesses. The Sandy Bridge GPU was also new architecture that delivered acceptable performance for the first time. The server-oriented Sandy Bridge-EP started with the same building blocks, but eliminated the graphics, while adding more cores, more memory controllers, more PCI-E 3.

The Haswell family features a new CPU core, new graphics and substantial changes to the platform in terms of memory and power delivery and power management. All of these areas are significant from a technical and economic perspective and interact in various ways. However, the Haswell family represents a menu of options that are available for SoCs tailored to certain markets.

Not every product requires graphics e. Architects will pick and choose from the menu of options, based on a variety of technical and business factors. The heart of the Haswell family is the eponymous CPU. Haswell SoCs are aimed at 10W, potentially with further power reductions in the future. The Haswell CPU boasts a huge number of architectural enhancements, with four extensions that touch every aspect of the x86 instruction set architecture ISA.

The fused multiply-add extensions improve performance for floating point FP workloads, such as scientific computing, and nicely synergize with the new gather instructions. A small number of bit manipulation instructions aid cryptography, networking and certain search operations. Last, Intel has introduced TSX, or transactional memory , an incredibly powerful programming model for concurrency and multi-threaded programming.

TSX improves performance and efficiency of software by better utilizing the underlying multi-core hardware. The new Haswell core achieves even higher performance than Sandy Bridge. The improvements in Haswell are concentrated in the out-of-order scheduling, execution units and especially the memory hierarchy. It is a testament to the excellent front-end in Sandy Bridge that relatively few changes were necessary. The Haswell microarchitecture is a dual-threaded, out-of-order microprocessor that is capable of decoding 5 instructions, issuing 4 fused uops and dispatching 8 uops each cycle.
