Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor and Intel® 925XE Express Chipset Performance Brief

INTEL® PENTIUM® 4 PROCESSOR PRODUCT FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS The Intel® NetBurst™ micro-architecture delivers a number of innovative features including Hyper Pipelined Technology, 800 MHz, 533 MHz and 400 MHz System Bus (complemented by the corresponding bandwidth supported by the respective chipset families), Execution Trace Cache, and Rapid Execution Engine as well as a number of enhanced features: Advanced Transfer Cache, Advanced Dynamic Execution, Enhanced Floating-point and Multimedia Unit, and Streaming SIMD Extensions 2. Many of these innovations and advances were made possible with improvements in processor technology, process technology, and circuit design that could not previously be implemented in high-volume, manufacturable solutions. The features and resulting benefits of the Intel NetBurst micro-architecture are defined below. •

Hyper-Threading Technology This ground breaking innovation changes the landscape of processor design by going beyond GHz to improve processor performance. It allows software to “see” two logical processors even though there is only one processor physically in place. This new technology enables the processor to execute two series, or threads, of instructions at the same time, thereby improving performance and system responsiveness. The Intel Pentium 4 Processor with HT Technology is specially designed to deliver immediate increases on performance and system responsiveness with many stand-alone applications today and with existing applications in multitasking environments (i.e. where two or more things are running at the same time). It offers excellent performance in 3D, multimedia, audio, imaging, streaming video, Internet, e-business, collaborative productivity environments, and web services applications. Furthermore, the Intel Pentium 4 Processor with HT Technology provides performance headroom for the future.



Hyper Pipelined Technology: The hyper-pipelined technology of the Intel NetBurst micro-architecture doubles the pipeline depth compared to the P6 micro-architecture used on today’s Pentium III processors. One of the key pipelines, the branch prediction / recovery pipeline, is implemented in 20 stages in the Intel NetBurst micro-architecture, compared to 10 stages in the P6 micro-architecture. This technology significantly increases the performance, frequency, and scalability of the processor.



800 MHz, 533 MHz and 400 MHz System Bus: The Pentium 4 processor supports Intel’s highest performance desktop system bus by delivering 6.4 GB, 4.2 GB and 3.2 GB, of data per second into and out of the processor. This is accomplished through a physical signaling scheme of quad pumping the data transfers over a 100-MHz clocked system bus and a buffering scheme allowing for sustained 400-MHz data transfers. This compares to 1.06 GB/s delivered on the Pentium III processor’s 133-MHz system bus.



Level 1 Execution Trace Cache: In addition to the 8KB data cache, the Pentium 4 processor includes an Execution Trace Cache that stores up to 12K decoded micro-ops in the order of program execution. This increases performance by removing the decoder from the main execution loop and makes more efficient usage of the cache storage space since instructions that are branched around are not stored. The result is a means to deliver a high volume of instructions to the processor’s execution units and a reduction in the overall time required to recover from branches that have been mis-predicted.

Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor and Intel® 925XE Express Chipset Performance Brief •

Rapid Execution Engine: Two Arithmetic Logic Units (ALUs) on the Pentium 4 processor are clocked at twice the core processor frequency. This allows basic integer instructions such as Add, Subtract, Logical AND, Logical OR, etc. to execute in half a clock cycle. For example, the Rapid Execution Engine on a 1.50 GHz Pentium 4 processor runs at 3 GHz.



256KB, 512KB or 1MB Level 2 Advanced Transfer Cache: The Level 2 Advanced Transfer Cache (ATC) is either 256KB, 512KB or 1MB in size and delivers a much higher data throughput channel between the Level 2 cache and the processor core. The Advanced Transfer Cache consists of a 256-bit (32-byte) interface that transfers data on each core clock. As a result, the Pentium 4 processor 1.50 GHz can deliver a data transfer rate of 48 GB/s. This compares to a transfer rate of 16 GB/s on the Pentium III processor at 1 GHz. Features of the ATC include: ⇒ ⇒ ⇒ ⇒ ⇒

Non-Blocking, full speed, on-die Level 2 cache 8-way set associative 256-bit data bus to the level 2 cache Data clocked into and out of the cache every clock cycle 256KB Level 2 ATC found on the Intel Pentium 4 processor 1.30 GHz, 1.40 GHz, 1.50 GHz, 1.60 GHz, 1.70 GHz, 1.80 GHz, 1.90 GHz, and 2 GHz ⇒ 512KB Level 2 ATC found on the Intel Pentium 4 processor 1.60A GHz, 1.70A GHz, 1.80A GHz, 2A GHz, 2.20 GHz, 2.26 GHz, 2.40 GHz, 2.40B GHz, 2.40C GHz, 2.50 GHz, 2.53 GHz, 2.60 GHz, 2.60C GHz, 2.66 GHz, 2.80 GHz, 2.80C GHz, 3 GHz, 3.06 GHz, 3.20 GHz and 3.40 GHz ⇒ 1MB Level 2 ATC found on the Intel Pentium 4 processor 2.80A GHz, 2.80E GHz, 3E GHz, 3.20E GHz, 3.40E GHz and the Intel Pentium 4 processor 520, 530, 540, 550, 560 and 570J. •

Advanced Dynamic Execution: The Advanced Dynamic Execution engine is a very deep, out-of-order speculative execution engine that keeps the execution units executing instructions. The Pentium 4 processor can also view 126 instructions in flight and handle up to 48 loads and 24 stores in the pipeline. It also includes an enhanced branch prediction algorithm that has the net effect of reducing the number of branch mis-predictions by about 33% over the P6 generation processor’s branch prediction capability. It does this by implementing a 4KB branch target buffer that stores more detail on the history of past branches, as well as by implementing a more advanced branch prediction algorithm.



Enhanced Floating-Point and Multimedia Unit: The Pentium 4 processor expands the floating-point registers to a full 128-bit and adds an additional register for data movement which improves performance on both floatingpoint and multimedia applications.



Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (SSE2): The Intel NetBurst micro-architecture extended the SIMD capabilities that Intel MMX technology and SSE technology delivered by adding 144 instructions. These instructions include 128-bit SIMD integer arithmetic and 128-bit SIMD doubleprecision floating-point operations. These instructions reduce the overall number of instructions required to execute a particular program task and as a result can contribute to an overall performance increase. They accelerate a broad range of applications, including video, speech, and image, photo processing, encryption, financial, engineering and scientific applications.



Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSE3): 12

Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor and Intel® 925XE Express Chipset Performance Brief Offers 13 new instructions that accelerate performance of Streaming SIMD Extensions technology, Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 technology and x87-FP math capabilities. These instructions are designed to improve thread synchronization and specific application areas such as video. •

Features Used for Test and Performance / Thermal Monitoring: ⇒ Built-in Self Test (BIST) provides single stuck-at fault coverage of the microcode and large logic arrays, as well as testing of the instruction cache, data cache, Translation Lookaside Buffers (TLBs), and ROMs. ⇒ IEEE 1149.1 Standard Test Access Port and Boundary Scan mechanism enables testing of the Pentium 4 processor and system connections through a standard interface. ⇒ Internal performance counters can be used for performance monitoring and event counting. ⇒ Includes a Thermal Monitor feature that allows motherboards to be cost effectively designed to expected application power usages rather than theoretical maximums.

Business Multitasking The pillars of Business and Consumer multitasking represent scenarios where the PC is being tasked to do multiple activities at one time, which end-users now do regularly. On an Intel Pentium 4 processor based PC the business user will experience great performance on background and foreground computing activities involving data compression and virus scanning allowing business to publish documents while protecting their computing environment. Publish and Protect Simultaneously: McAfee* VirusScan* 8.0 with Microsoft* Word* 2003 and Adobe* Acrobat* 6.0.1 In today's business environment, users are running multiple applications at once, and are often executing multiple tasks from with in each application. On top of this, corporations have to run information security measures to safeguard not only their computer infrastructure, but also the vast amounts of data that they generate and store. All of these applications and security measures running at the same time can negatively impact user productivity by making the PC less responsive to user input. By deploying the Intel Pentium 4 Processor with HT Technology, you are better equipped to run multiple applications such as Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat and McAfee VirusScan, thus increasing productivity. Intel's Hyper-Threading Technology enables the processor to execute threads or tasks in parallel, and can therefore offer improved performance and better responsiveness for today's multitasking workloads and many applications. For example, take an individual such as a Technical Specifications Writer working in press relations who needs to send out numerous press releases, making sure the release is published and unchangeable. To accomplish this he could create those press releases in Microsoft Word and then use Adobe Acrobat to create a PDF document to distribute. Typically he needs to convert numerous documents to PDF and often does several at a time. A slower PC without Hyper-Threading Technology doesn't offer the performance he demands in this multitasking environment. Additionally his company's IT department has set up his system to run virus scanning periodically throughout the day. This significantly slows down the conversion of Word documents into PDF format, so he often turns off the security feature so that he can stay productive. With a PC powered by the Intel Pentium 4 Processor with HT Technology, he could leave the virus scanning on, ensuring the security of his organization and complete all his document conversions simultaneously. • •

However, finding a balance between IT's desire for a secure computing environment and an end users need to be productive can be difficult. As information security measures increase, this can take a toll on older machines making them often sluggish and unresponsive, thus impacting the user's ability to work effectively. With Intel's new Hyper-Threading Technology computers can finally strike a balance between end user needs and those of IT. For example, running a full system virus scan using an application like McAfee VirusScan 8.0 can greatly impact the productivity of the end user. This is because the PC's processor now has to execute virus scanning while at the same time run other productivity applications like Adobe Photoshop CS. The result is simple; Photoshop performance suffers and employee productivity drops. Now, with PC's supporting Intel's Hyper-Threading Technology the processor can effectively perform both operations at the same time. So, Photoshop performance is maintained keeping the employee productive while information security operations like virus scanning continue to run in the background. Finally the information security needs of IT and productivity needs of the employee can be balanced. • •
