E-20 Vol. 1 xxi CONTENTS PAGE xxii Vol. 1 CHAPTER 1 ABOUT THIS MANUAL The Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer's Manual, Volume 1: Basic Architecture (order number 253665) is part of a set that describes the architecture and programming environment of Intel 64 and IA-32 architecture processors. Other volumes in this set are: The Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer's Manual, Volumes 2A & 2B: Instruction Set Reference (order numbers 253666 and 253667). The Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer's Manual, Volumes 3A & 3B: System Programming Guide (order number 253668 and 253669). The Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer's Manual, Volume 1, describes the basic architecture and programming environment of Intel 64 and IA-32 processors. The Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer's Manual, Volumes 2A & 2B, describe the instruction set of the processor and the opcode structure. These volumes apply to application programmers and to programmers who write operating systems or executives. The Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer's Manual, Volumes 3A & 3B, describe the operating-system support environment of Intel 64 and IA-32 processors. These volumes target operatingsystem and BIOS designers. In addition, the Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer's Manual, Volume 3B, addresses the programming environment for classes of software that host operating systems. 1.1 INTEL 64 AND IA-32 PROCESSORS COVERED IN THIS MANUAL This manual set includes information pertaining primarily to the most recent Intel 64 and IA-32 processors, which include: Pentium processors P6 family processors Pentium 4 processors Pentium M processors Intel Xeon processors Pentium D processors Pentium processor Extreme Editions 64-bit Intel Xeon processors Intel CoreTM Duo processor Intel CoreTM Solo processor Vol. 1 1-1 ABOUT THIS MANUAL Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor LV Intel CoreTM2 Duo processor Intel CoreTM2 Quad processor Intel Xeon processor 3000 series Intel Xeon processor 5100 series Intel Xeon processor 5300 series Intel CoreTM2 Extreme processor Intel CoreTM2 Extreme Quad-core processor Intel Xeon processor 7100 series P6 family processors are IA-32 processors based on the P6 family microarchitecture. This includes the Pentium Pro, Pentium II, Pentium III, and Pentium III Xeon processors. The Pentium 4, Pentium D, and Pentium processor Extreme Editions are based on the Intel NetBurst microarchitecture. Most early Intel Xeon processors are based on the Intel NetBurst microarchitecture. The Intel CoreTM Duo, Intel CoreTM Solo and dual-core Intel Xeon processor LV are based on an improved Pentium M processor microarchitecture. The Intel Xeon processor...
