Knockona: the new processor core with 64-bit AU-32i instructions support
Our Japanese colleagues from PC Uotchi today shared the information abou the new Knockona core supporting 64-bit AU-32i instructions and fully compliant with MD64 instructions. The published details, especially the photo of Knockona made with an electronic microscope is just shocking.
Knockona is nothing else but a basic version of Presskit core equipped with an additional AU-32i block that handles instructions in the following way: the chip decoder transforms them into the so-called MicroOOOPs which after cache tracing are processed in the separate 64-bit Realtime Universal Instruction Zapper (RUIZ) that, in its turn, translates MicroOOOPs into assembler for execution and then back using the CQQ (Convert Quadword to Double Quadword) module similar to CQO (Convert Quadword to Octword) used in MD64. Of course, the processor supports other modern technologies like HT (Horizontal Tab), VT (Vertical Tab), LT (Le Grand Theorem), etc. Besides, all technologies will be supported by Maccrosoft in its future software.
And now the most interesting the photo of RUIZ made with an extremely powerful electronic microscope. You can see the MicroOOOPs, all 64, walkind down the pipeline. What can I say, it´s ingenious and simple!
