AMD 760MPX Chipset Overview - PCstats.com AMD 760MPX Chipset Overview
Mon, May 06 2002 | 1:35AM | PermaLink Feedback?
"Chipset support for multi processor systems is one thing but the CPU also needs to have certain features present before it can be used with a supporting chipset. To take one of these features as an example where the x86 architecture is concerned, there are a number of interrupt request lines (IRQ's) present in the system managed by the CPU. Hardware attached to the host bus that the CPU is connected to can raise interrupts on these IRQ lines and the CPU responds to the request. Simplified, this is how modern x86 systems work. The hardware, a graphics card for example, raises an interrupt on an IRQ line to signal to the CPU that it is ready to use the bus and send or recieve data (or both!) on the bus and the interrupt tells the CPU to manage that request."
