Lecture 3

Platforms I: Advanced Architectural Features

Andrzej Nowak

This lecture describes some advanced architectural features of modern and upcoming CPU designs. It also addresses the problems of effective coding, especially for parallel and distributed environments.

Important topics:

  • Hardware extensions

  • Language extensions

  • New and experimental languages and compilers

  • Interesting current and upcoming hardware designs

The highlight of this lecture is the way that software relates to hardware, especially when new computational hardware comes into play.

Lecture 3 targets listeners who need to follow developments in the hardware and compiler domains.


It is recommended that the listeners follow Lecture 2 before attending this one, but it is not required.
