Intel® Architecture Extends User Experience: White Paper

Intel has a long history of innovation in adding new capabilities to computer architecture and enabling the industry to deliver advanced applications with greater performance and capability. From the original Intel® 8086 to the recent addition of Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSSE3) found in the Intel® Core™2 Duo processor, Intel has led the way in expanding the capabilities of the world’s most popular and broadly used computer architecture: Intel® architecture.

Continuing the history of innovation, this latest expansion of Intel architecture constitutes the most impactful instructions since Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (Intel® SSE2) and represents the next major leap in Intel’s fast-paced trajectory to deliver products with superior performance, capability, and energy efficiency for years to come.

Building on the already rich Intel® 64 instruction set architecture (ISA), these new instructions will enable our microprocessors across all volume market segments to deliver superior performance and energy efficiency to a broad range of 32-bit and 64-bit applications. These new instructions include:
• Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions 4 that provides building blocks for delivering expanded capabilities, enhanced performance, and greater energy efficiency for most applications.
• Application targeted accelerators that provide a new foundation for delivering low-latency, lower-power fixed-function capabilities for targeted applications.

This document provides historical reference for the Intel® architecture expansion and defines the difference between architecture and microarchitecture, which is used for design, layout, and implementation of ISA in silicon.
