Descripción del producto
"The new coverage of multiprocessors and parallelism lives up to the standards of this well-written classic. It provides well-motivated, gentle introductions to the new topics, as well as many details and examples drawn from curent hardware." -- John Greiner, Rice University
"Patterson and Hennessy not only improve the pedagogy of the traditional material on pipelined processors and memory hierarchies, but also greatly expand the multiprocessor coverage to include emerging multicore processors and GPUs. Computer Organization and Design sets a new benchmark against which all other architecture books must be compared." -- David A. Wood, University of Wisconsin-Madison
"Intended for computer science students and programmers of varied experience levels, this textbook on computer design and engineering provides a firm foundation in hardware engineering and computer architecture that will aid readers not only in working with hardware design and assembly language programming, but inform software engineers as to the underlying technologies and principles at work in machines they program for. Topics discussed include computer abstractions and technologies, instructions as to the language of computer hardware, arithmetic for computers, processors, memory hierarchies, storage and I/O, and multicores and multiprocessors. A series of appendices offers detailed information on graphics and GPU processes. Chapters include numerous illustrations and code examples and an accompanying CD-ROM provides additional chapters and other resources. This fourth edition is updated to account for the latest technological improvements."--Reference and Research Book News, Inc.
"This book, now in its fourth edition, is a comprehensive introduction to modern computer architecture and is aimed at a variety of audiences with backgrounds in either hardware or software…While there is a great deal of technical content, concepts are lucidly described and always given meaningful context. I found this book to be an interesting read and certainly a book I'd plan to read again." --BCS.org
Reseña del editor
Computer Organization and Design, Fourth Edition, has been updated with new exercises and improvements throughout suggested by instructors teaching from the book.
It covers the revolutionary change from sequential to parallel computing, with a chapter on parallelism and sections in every chapter highlighting parallel hardware and software topics. It includes an appendix by the Chief Scientist and the Director of Architecture of NVIDIA covering the emergence and importance of the modern GPU, describing in detail for the first time the highly parallel, highly multithreaded multiprocessor optimized for visual computing. A companion CD provides a toolkit of simulators and compilers along with tutorials for using them, as well as advanced content for further study and a search utility for finding content on the CD and in the printed text. For the convenience of readers who have purchased an ebook edition or who may have misplaced the CD-ROM, all CD content is available as a download at bit.ly/nFXcLq.
This book is recommended for professional digital system designers, programmers, application developers, and system software developers; and undergraduate students in Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering courses in Computer Organization, Computer Design, ranging from Sophomore required courses to Senior Electives.

Except I can't. Because the digital version is just one long manuscript. One of my friends purchased the actual physical book, and not only does it have page numbers (as it should), the layout itself is both quite different and far superior.
Bottom line, unless they fix the incredibly poor formatting of the digital version, get the physical one if you're using at as a textbook.
I'd stay away from this book as much as you can. I used this textbook for a course and even the professor has a strong disliking towards it. Do not buy.
I'm currently at university, and I took a class in Computer Organization this semester. I was definitely unfamiliar with the low-level aspects of Computer Science, so needless to say I was a bit intimidated. However, this textbook thoroughly prepared me for my exams, and I relied on this textbook more than I have any other text for any other class. Not only did it prepare me, but I feel that I have learned more about Computer Science from this textbook than I have from any other.
I've seen some other reviews complain about typos, but I can usually overlook those. There are only two colors in the book (blue and black), but this is obviously to keep prices down (see below). Sometimes I found myself reading the same passages over and over again because I had trouble understanding what the author meant. I definitely get a sense that this edition was a bit rushed, as both the authors have demanding jobs outside of writing textbooks.
I also have a serious issue with the way I couldn't find ANY answers anywhere to the problems in the book. It seems like standard practice to have the odd or even-numbered solutions in the back of the book or online, but I could not locate any. That's really my only complaint about this text, all the other issues I can excuse in some way.
One of the most important points about this textbook is its price. You can easily pick this up for less than $40, which is pretty much a steal compared to some $100 or $200 textbooks. In light of the price, I can excuse the few areas where the cut corners to reduce printing prices.
I have never been forced to use a worse text in my academic career (and I have several degrees). I hope you don't have to use this book in its current form.
As other reviewers have notes, the binding of the book is the worst I have seen in a book. I have read books over 200 years old in better shape (I bought mine new).
My main complain is that too much of the interesting and unique content was pushed into the accompanying CD-ROM. I'd rather have removed some of the generic architecture stuff or the endless pages of exercises that you can find anywhere else and pushed some of this content onto the print!
