Intel® Itanium® Processor 9300 Series

The Intel® Itanium® processor 9300 series is the seventh generation Intel® Itanium® processor. Intel® Itanium® processor 9300 series builds on the previous Intel® Itanium® processors while introducing new technologies for performance and reliability to the Intel® Itanium® processor family. Key improvements include four cores per die, multi-threading improvements, virtualization enhancements, integrated memory controllers, directory coherency, and Intel® QuickPath Interconnect technology. This section describes key Intel® Itanium® processor 9300 series features and how its implementation of the Intel® Itanium® architecture differs from previous Intel® Itanium® processors. Some of this information may not be directly applicable to performance tuning, but allows developers to better understand changes in application behavior on the Intel® Itanium® processor 9300 series compared to other Intel® Itanium® processors. Unless otherwise stated, all of the restrictions, rules, sizes, and capacities described in this document apply specifically to the Intel® Itanium® processor 9300 series and may not apply to other Intel® Itanium® processors. This document assumes a familiarity with the previous Intel® Itanium® processors, including some of their unique properties and behaviors. Furthermore, only differences as they relate to performance and general use will be included here. Information about Intel® Itanium® processor 9300 series features such as error protection, virtualization technology, and multi-threading technology support may be obtained in other documents. General understanding of processor components and explicit familiarity with the Intel® Itanium® instruction set are assumed. This document is not intended to be used as an architectural reference for the Intel® Itanium® architecture. For more information on the Intel® Itanium® architecture, consult the Intel® Itanium® Architecture Software Developer’s Manual.
