Which microarchitectures use micro-operations?
I'd like to see this article document the history of the use of micro-operations. For example, which microarchitectures in the List of Intel CPU microarchitectures incorporate(d) micro-operations? – Wdfarmer (talk) 06:59, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
- All of them do, but not in exactly the same way. All of them use traditional fixed microcode to various degrees, while the later ones (P6 and onwards) also use dynamically created sequences of microinstructions (as described in the article). 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:50, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
