Computer architectures have been drastically evolved since early 1980. Pipelining, cache, and branch prediction have been major features in modern microprocessor design. They are invented for high performance processors first, then equipped in PC processors we are using everyday. In our class, we focus on common computer architectural features for personal computers, servers, and embedded devices. At the end of this course you will understand basic principles on pipelining, cache hierarchies, memory systems, storage, and I/O systems.
