In Advanced PC Architecture, engineers and other technical professionals will gain an in-depth understanding of today\'s PC architecture, its interrelationships, bottlenecks, and problem areas. Building on these fundamentals, the book then previews tomorrow\'s breakthroughs in PC architecture, which will simplify every aspect of the computing experience, while at the same time delivering supercomputer performance to the desktop. KEY TOPICS:Advanced PC Architecture includes detailed coverage of the phase-out of legacy ISA buses and devices; and new interfaces such as USB, which allow for automatic device configuration and identification. The authors cover today\'s rapid increases in processor performance, identifying the key challenges for developers of surrounding system boards and peripherals, and introducing new architectures that closely match system memory and graphics processors to CPU speed. Coverage includes new memory devices such as RDRAM for ultra-high-speed data transfer; new plug-and-play architectures; increased uses of bridges that organize PCs into high-speed segments, and more. An accompanying CD-ROM includes a complete electronic copy of the book in Acrobat PDF format. MARKET: For all technical professionals involved with planning, designing, or building PC systems; and for students in engineering, computing, software engineering, and related fields.
