    Intel Pentium Processors

    Can anyone provide complete internal architecture, instruction set and all the information regarding the underlying technology (with circuit diagrams, if possible) in Intel pentium or any of the later processors.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    You're talking about trade secrets here. You can probably get some of it by reviewing their patents. But the deep secrets like internal architecture and schematics will not be patented, for exactly the reason of keeping secrets.

    I doubt the schematics will do you much good... It would take down a medium sized forest to print it out. You're talking millions of semi-conductor junctions and very few intervening parts. This information probably exists only as a huge computer data file that is worked on only by Intel's computers. SkyNet type stuff... computers designing computers.

    A good book on x86 and/or x64 Assembler will give you their instruction set.

    But the real big question is... Why do you want this?

    You use to be able to purchase books from Intel but now I think they are only available online or on CD / DVD. I'm not sure about AMD as I do not own any of their tech refs.

    They used to be free (just pay postage) I still have my set of the IA32 blue books on my shelf.
