Using hardware queues to break the multi-core CPU bottleneck

Using hardware queues to break the multi-core CPU bottleneck Each CPU will have its own L2 cache, where data related to the problem is stored.In a coherent cache, CPU 0 completes part of its calculations, writes a new value to a block of memory, and then communicates that it has done so.

AMD’s Vega graphics chip appears on CompuBench as its launch nears

AMD’s Vega graphics chip appears on CompuBench as its launch nears In AMD’s Graphics Core Next design, the company groups 64 stream processors into one compute unit, thus the upcoming Vega chip will have 4,096 stream processors.More: AMD’s upcoming Vega-based graphics cards will be called Radeon RX Vega That said, the more stream processors, the better.

Rumor: Intel Planning 12-Core Core i9 CPUs to Challenge AMD's Ryzen

Rumor: Intel Planning 12-Core Core i9 CPUs to Challenge AMD's Ryzen The other chips are listed as follows: Core i7-7640K: 4 cores, 4 threads, 4GHz base, 4.The two Core i7 chips would be Kaby Lake-derived while the rest of the Core i9 family is based on Skylake-X.

How L1 and L2 CPU Caches Work, and Why They're an Essential Part of Modern Chips

How L1 and L2 CPU Caches Work, and Why They're an Essential Part of Modern Chips This is where the L2 cache comes into play — while it’s slower, it’s also much larger.This chart shows the relationship between an L1 cache with a constant hit rate, but a larger L2 cache.

L2 vs. L3 cache: What's the Difference?

L2 vs. L3 cache: What's the Difference? Today, we’re going to take one step further and explore the difference between L2 and L3 caches.At its simplest level, an L3 cache is just a larger, slower version of the L2 cache.
