From the Back Cover
This update of the popular book on computer architecture presents design ideas embodied in many high-performance machines and stresses techniques for evaluating them. Stone develops a proper understanding of the design process by treating the various trade-offs that exist in designing choices, and shows how good designs make efficient use of technology.Features
- Teaches techniques for the design and analysis of high-performance machines
- Develops students' intuition for design by treating various tradeoffs that exist in design choices
- Discusses many important topics: RISC architectures, interconnection meshes, Cache coherent and multiprocessors, and Cache Memory.
- Includes enhanced descriptions of RISC Processors
- Expands material on Cache Memory Analysis
- Current technology in RISC with a focused look on super scalar
- Additional memory models and techniques for doing Cache design
- New porposals for coherent memory systems in System C parallel processors
- Both design and thought problems and problems with limiting parameters are provided

Anyway, awesome book... I recommend wholeheartedly as one of the important texts in the history of computer engineering. Going back to seminal texts/papers in a field can add significant perspective and Stone's book is one of those for me and sits on a shelf with the other great texts I consumed slowly and filled the margins with my notes and questions... Stone... Buchholz/Planning a Computer System... Bell/Mudge/McNamara... Mead/Conway... Sieworek/Swarz... and Bill Blood's MECL System Design Handbook... and just for more real world electrical imperfection, Stone's Microcomputer Interfacing. After thinking about all that again, I think I need to take a month and go back and read all these again!
I like the examples from real research findings and the design techniques that the author provided but the material is a little dated now.
This book does give you a good emphasis on design for those who are up to speed.
