Modern CPUs are incredibly complicated and far away from most people's understanding. This talk will show how instructions are actually executed which will highlight the intricate interactions of the different components of a modern CPU. It will help developers understanding how to optimize code and everyone will learn to read a vendor's description of a processor to make better purchasing decisions.
