ABOUT THIS MANUAL

The IA-32 Intel® Architecture Software Developer’s Manual, Volume 1: Basic Architecture (Order Number 253665) is part of a set that describes the architecture and programming environment of IA-32 Intel architecture processors. Other volumes in this set are:

- The IA-32 Intel Architecture Software Developer’s Manual, Volumes 2A & 2B: Instruction Set Reference (Order Numbers 253666 and 253667).
- The IA-32 Intel Architecture Software Developer’s Manual, Volume 3: System Programming Guide (Order Number 253668).

The IA-32 Intel Architecture Software Developer’s Manual, Volume 1, describes the basic architecture and programming environment of an IA-32 processor. The IA-32 Intel Architecture Software Developer’s Manual, Volumes 2A & 2B describe the instruction set of the processor and the opcode structure. These volumes target application programmers who are writing programs to run under existing operating systems or executives. The IA-32 Intel Architecture Software Developer’s Manual, Volume 3 describes the operating-system support environment of an IA-32 processor and IA-32 processor compatibility information. This volume is aimed at operatingsystem and BIOS designers.

1.1 IA-32 PROCESSORS COVERED IN THIS MANUAL

This manual set includes information pertaining primarily to the most recent IA-32 processors, which include: Pentium® processors, P6 family processors, Pentium 4 processors, Pentium M processors, and Intel® Xeon processors. P6 family processors are IA-32 processors based on the P6 family microarchitecture, which include the Pentium Pro, Pentium II, and Pentium III processors. The Pentium 4 and Intel Xeon processors are based on the Intel NetBurst® microarchitecture.
