Quad Core Processors - Technology Presentation

  1. 1. Group 3 Team details blanked out! Team details blanked out!
  2. 2. <ul><li>One constant in computing is that the world’s hunger for faster performance is never satisfied </li></ul><ul><li>What are we really looking for? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Superior Performance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Energy Efficiency </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Ultimately Energy-Efficient Performance </li></ul><ul><li>We have had </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hyper-Threading (HT) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dual-Core and Core 2 Duo </li></ul></ul><ul><li>And now </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Quad-Core </li></ul></ul>Road to Quad-Core Technology
  3. 3. What is Quad-Core? <ul><li>Four execution cores in one package </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Each core runs at a lower frequency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Power normally given to a single core is divided among four cores </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Resulting in higher performance per watt of power consumed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Performance = Frequency x Instructions/Clock Cycle </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Power = Dynamic Capacitance x Voltage 2 x Frequency </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Are designed to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plug into current motherboards </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Meet thermal and electrical specifications </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce Total Cost of Ownership </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increase Return on Investment </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Fabricated on </li></ul><ul><ul><li>65nm Silicon Process Technology </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Intel Core Micro-Architecture </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Intel Advanced Smart Cache </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>L2 cache shared between 4 cores </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Dynamic usage (up to 100%) per core </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Intel Wide Dynamic Execution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>More instructions per clock cycle </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Each core can complete up to 4 full instructions simultaneously </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Intel Virtualization Technology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hardware assisted virtualization </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Fully-Buffered DIMM Technology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>High speed memory access </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Intel I/O Acceleration Technology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hardware assisted I/O </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Efficient processor and platform thermal control </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>System fans spin only as fast as needed to cool the system </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Slower spinning fans generate less noise </li></ul></ul>Features on an Intel Quad-Core Processor
  5. 5. Quad-Core Insides
  6. 6. <ul><li>Four dedicated physical threads </li></ul><ul><li>Helps operating systems and applications deliver additional performance </li></ul><ul><li>End users experience better multitasking and multi-threaded performance </li></ul><ul><li>Across many types of applications and workloads </li></ul>What Does Quad-Core Mean for End Users?
  7. 7. Performance Benchmarks: For Workstations
  8. 8. Performance Benchmarks: For Servers
