Advanced PC Architecture
This book aims to give a thorough grounding on the key areas of PC hardware, namely the processor and the architecture of the PC. Aimed at anyone working with or on PC hardware as standalones or within networks, the book will provide current information on the state of the art in processors (Intel 8086/8; 80486, Pentium & Pro; P6 & P7), on ISA/PCI/PCMIA buses and on hardware/software integration. The material is up to date with the latest developments, but much of it is timeless, as it covers earlier established technologies currently in use.
For the first time, this book shows every single connection within a PC and how all the bits of a PC fit together.
