CSE 30 -- Lecture 14 -- Nov 17

Topics: writing code that avoids pipeline hazards, superscalar processors, performance metrics (read chapter 2), benchmarks. Chapter 2 has most of the details that I went over about this.

We also talked about context switching costs (deeper pipelines and larger register files makes it more expensive), multitasking OSes, context switching, address space protection.
