Talk:Call gate (Intel)
|WikiProject Computer Security / Computing|
This was previously a transwikied dicdef; I have now fleshed it out into a proper stub: there is lots more that can go into this article regarding computer security, malware, and different implementations of the x86 architecture. -- The Anome 11:38, 21 July 2006 (UTC)
"With the introduction of SYSENTER/SYSEXIT and SYSCALL/SYSRET, a new faster mechanism was introduced for control transfers for x86 programs"
"Upon comparing call gates to interrupts, call gates are significantly faster."
- Software interrupts are a third method of system call, although that last sentence should be investigated. Abubalay (talk) 18:14, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Every generation believes that it invented sex
The concept of a call gate is not unique to the Intel x86 architecture and did not originate there; it goes back at least as far as Multics. The article should either be renamed, e.g., to Call gate (Intel), or rewritten to comply with Wikipedia:Neutral point of view. Shmuel (Seymour J.) Metz Username:Chatul (talk) 20:51, 2 May 2016 (UTC).
