AMD will never look this good.
>>
>>52557619
AMD doesn't have the money to shoot die shots with color shit like that any more.
>>
Dies actually look like that. Same reason as CDs, but smaller.

Sure they do, just look at those half-cores glistening.
>>
>>52557619
AMD isn't discriminating against people based on race unlike Intel...

If your white or Asian and buying Intel your paying people to hate you.

what the fuck is all that shit?

i did some processor architecture in the cs major (wish i had taken the electives on that to find out more desu) and i cant recognize shit. it also didnt seem like a processor would have nearly that many components. only thing i can make out is the big memory arrays

im serious if someone that knows more could explain i'd be thankful
>>
>>52559095
Guess you learned shit that was deprecated in the 80's.
>>
Those are just 3D generated floorpans, dies don't look that sensational.

I did my best.
>>
>>52559323
You forgot the NB between the L3 cache on the right
>>
>>52559342
You're right.
Instruction fetch and decode should be next to the branch predictor too, I think.
>>
>>52559400
That's part of the core frontend, you probably can't single it out on this image since arr the core components rook same

>believing lies about "technology"

It's all really black magic.

Technology is just the pretext for how the antichrist will take over the world. Step 1 is ensuring everyone has a computer.

>>52559323
thank you m8

>>52559148
mostly, yeah. in the end we learned a lot of more modern stuff for making the processors go faster but it was probably deprecated too since i remember that we once used pentium 4 architecture as an example for something
>>
>>52559180
Not sure. Perhaps they are that shiny, pre-packaging? I've certainly seen a few third-party (decapped) die shots on older processes which look almost that gleaming.
>>
AMD GPU and Intel CPU is the masterrace
>>
>>52559095
You didn't study well.

>>52559323
Stuff around the edges are the memory pads/PHY. HT links, display out, and IO.
Theres a breakdown of the modules themselves.
>>
Does anyone know what textbooks are good for learning modern processor architecture? On a detailed circuitry level, not on an abstract function level (logic diagrams and whatnot).

I actually have a bunch of wafers with 64 MB RAM chips on them.
They don't look that spectacular, but are nice to look at regardless. Especially in the right light.

>>52560452
Does the FPU not have its own DCache like the integer units? Why isn't the FPU physically closer to the decoders like the int units?

It's actually not filters.
Just different process steps that make some parts shine in different colors.

that random colored bullshit as you put it are the actual CPU dies themselves. Real men design and build "that random colored bullshit" for a living so you can shitpost about it on the internet.

Mmmmmm girl, this is why I'm going into computer engineering, I want to take part in designing these magnificent things. Either that or research and development on something like monoatomic transistors.
>>
>>52563694
I have a tough time picturing a transistor smaller than 2 or 3 atoms, since the transistors I know need 2 inputs and 1 output and I can't really see 2 inputs going into the same atom not screwing with each other in some way.
>>
>>52563821
At one atom the elementary particles themselves must become your i/o. Quantum physics basically forces this scheme on us, since, you know, electrons can just decide to be on the other side of something if it's small enough.
