Hammer programming manuals available


— 5:27 AM on September 6, 2002

What better way to spend a friday night than reading AMD's programming manuals for its upcoming Hammer processor? Actually, you might want to block off the entire weekend.

  • Volume 1: Application programming
  • Volume 2: System programming
  • Volume 3: General-purpose and system instructions
  • Volume 4: 128-bit media instructions
  • Volume 5: 64-bit media and x87 floating-point instructions
The early availability of programming guides may help attract developers to AMD's new 64-bit platform, but only time will tell how many applications will end up with Hammer-specific optimizations.
Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
