 Volume Multi-Processor Systems: Part 2

Ace's Hardware has published Volume Multi-Processor Systems: Part 2, the newest entry in our in-depth series into multi-processor systems. The first part discussed single-processor performance, workstation and server sizing, CPU/system design considerations, and more. This time around, we take a look at the specific architectural implementations of several volume multi-processor systems. The servers we look at are based around the Pentium III, Pentium 4, Athlon, PowerPC, Itanium, and UltraSPARC architectures, including detailed diagrams of the system layout for each system.

Additionally, we also look into the future to see what technologies 2003 has in store for us. The impact of integrated northbridges and memory interfaces are discussed, as well as the benefits of improving thread-level parallelism through on-chip multiprocessing and fine-grained multi-threading.
