Need to get inside the hardware, and don't mind a few
bumps along the way? Computer Architecture: A Quantitative
Approach will take you deeper than you probably ever
thought you wanted to go. The focus is on uniprocessor
architecture, although it does provide introductory
coverage of multiprocessors. This work covers the various
designs and alternatives for instruction sets, pipelining,
cache, memory, I/O, etc. and provides current examples as
well as historical references.

The weakness of the book is that the exercises at the end
of each chapter go beyond the scope of the material covered.
Although certainly worthwhile and complimentary to the
material presented in the chapters, the exercises seem to
be material for the next level. The authors should either
make the exercises more related to the chapter explanations
and examples, or they should offer relevant extended
references. It would also be helpful if they provided
an answer set to a percentage of the exercises.

The user of the 2nd edition is well advised to grab the
errata file from the publisher, see Preface, as there are
many errors in the printing.

Overall, I would recommend this book to those who are
serious about gaining an advanced understanding of modern
computer architecture. Be advised, a good basic
understanding is necessary before tackling this work.

I used this book in a 400-level computer science course (and I did get an A) and found it incredibly frustrating.
Most of the meat of the book is well presented and fairly well written.
But! There were so many errors and ommisions in chapter-ending questions, diagram figures, and charts/figures that anything otherwise positive about the book was cancelled out.
My edition was new as of Spring '98, it and the previous two versions used by students in my class were loaded with errors.
The bottom line, what book addresses the subject better? I have to think this is a good buy, just wait for a newer edition and hope that the complex performance/cost analysis questions aren't already doomed by errors.

There are times when using this book particularly the exercises that I am glad I am doing research in this field, as details are sometimes left out. However this is not necessarily a bad thing, as it forces students to think about how a problem should be formulated (e.g. what assumptions make sense, what simplifications are reasonable).
On the whole this is a pretty good book but it works best for an audience with some prior exposure to the concepts (of course a reflection of the fact that it is not an introductory text).

Thorough and deep text on modern computer architecture. Treatment of uniprocessors (particularly RISCs) is more comprehensive than treatment of multis and IO/peripherals. A must buy.

In reading this book for a class, I thought it was quite well written, although its attempts to be both in-depth and broad can make it difficult to get through. At times the authors write for many pages on an interesting but minute detail.
Consider when buying this book that, given the speed of advancement in this field, each edition will be outdated shortly after its publication.

As with the 1st edition, this is a book that is not only packed with information, but it is also presented in an extremely readable way. I read the 1st edition from cover to cover in a weeks time. The same goes for the 2nd edition. The 'Fallacies and Pitfalls' sections are possible the best sections: the drive home serious points, while maintaining a humourous view.

This book has a great deal of information in it but the end of chapter questions are often vague. The sample questions dont really apply to the chapter end questions and the solutions manual is currently out of print and not available.
