Pentium Processor Optimization Tools shows C and assembly language programmers how to improve the performance of their programs by taking advantage of the superscaler architecture of the Intel Pentium CPU. It also includes numerous examples of code optimized for Pentium processors with a discussion of the changes of the 80x86 instructions set. "This book offer valuable advice on the Pentium. A book by veteran assembly-language programmer Michael Schmit offers software developers specific advice on exploiting the full performance of the Pentium microprocessor's dual-pipeline processing architecture." --PC Week Features: * Step-by-step programming examples show the reader how to optimize their programs for the Pentium * Includes 3.5" disk with source code for programming examples, as well as a demonstration version of Quantasm Corporation's Pentium Optimizer software utility * Introduction to Assembley language programming * Pentium architecture * C interfacing * Mixed 16 and 32 bit programming
