    Phoronix: An Introduction To Intel's Tremont Microarchitecture

    Intel's Stephen Robinson is presenting today at the Linley Fall Processor Conference on the company's Tremont microarchitecture. Here is a look at Tremont from our pre-briefing earlier this week.

    Tremont is also the first Intel (and x86) microarchitecture to implement the #AC exception when a split lock is encountered. Pretty important for implementing real-time systems on x86.

        I would rather have ARM Cortex-A77 which is probably way better than this.

          I'd actually be interested in reading how this compares to latest ARM solutions if it's designed to compete with them.

            Cool and all, but I've been waiting on this architecture for 2 years now. They might as well actually release it.

              this is ivy bridge level

                Design target: single-thread performance.
                Someone tell them it's 2019 already.

                  Single-thread performance still matters in 2019, it's unfortunately not the case that every task can be parallelized to the nth degree.

                    Fortunately, the typical number of different tasks running on modern general purpose CPU is more than one.
                    It's 2019. DOS and likes are way in the past.
