Hi guys, I need to compare some server and desktop processors like amd opteron vs intel xeon or amd phenom vs intel core 2 duo.

I need, specifically, information on internal functional units, pipeline architecture, pipeline hazards and pipeline

I've found lots of readings regarding these processors but there isn't any information about pipelining. Most are about cache size, chip size, etc. Nothing really about the pipeline info that I need.

If you can point me to some online references that can provide me with the pipelining info, it would really help. Thanks!

The manufacturer's websites would be the logical choices...all relevant data on a processor should be there, IMO. Tech manuals, specs, etc.

I would do a search...and be prepared for lots of data.
