In order to maximize the performance of your assembly language code, you need to understand a few pivotal details about the inner workings of an x86 processor. In this chapter, you’ll study the internal architecture of a modern x86 multi-core processor and its underlying microarchitecture. Boosting assembly language software performance also requires appropriate use of certain x86 coding strategies and techniques, which are also examined in this chapter.
