Item description for Processor Architecture: From Dataflow to Superscalar and Beyond by Jurij Silc...
This monograph surveys architectural mechanisms and implementation techniques for exploiting fine-grained and coarse-grained parallelism within microprocessors. It starts with a review of past techniques, continues with a comprehensive account of state-of-the-art techniques used in microprocessors that covers both the concepts involved and implementations in sample processors, and ends with a thorough review of the research techniques that will lead to future microprocessors.

Wonderful book!! Jan 11, 2006
i think this is the best book i have read on computer architectures.. very brief, very precise -- you don't waste time reading stuff obviously aimed at beginners (= anyone who yawns when (re-?)reading HP/CA:AQA). must read for any student who has done (a little more than an) elementary course in CA, and wants to continue in this field. this book is great! buy your copy today; and if you are rich enough, donate one to me so i can return this library copy!
good coverage Sep 8, 2002
This book covers most of the state-of-the-art commercial processor microarchitectures as well as (almost) latest research and development both in academia and industries. Probably one of the broadest coverages among all published architecture book as of today. Well, not quite a textbook like CA:AQA by Hennessy and Patterson though. But it is a nice reference book for folks with architecture backgrounds.
An excellent review of processor architectures Oct 18, 1999
This monograph does a fine job of reviewing the past, present, and emerging future of processor architectures in a a very approachable way. Even those who are not engineers, nor particularly familiar with the innerworkings of computers should be able to get a lot of information out of this book, and come away with a better understanding of the systems they interact with daily. A very enjoyable read, and will bring even those more familiar with its material up to speed on architectures past and present.
