Datapath

A datapath is a chain of registers and combinational logic in a digital circuit that performs computations.
For example, the datapath in Pipelined Logic Block with an f
MAX
of 100 MHz and Latency of Three clock cycles
consists of all elements shown, from the input register to the last output register.
In contrast, memory blocks are outside the datapath and reads and writes to memory are also considered to be outside of the datapath.

Product and Performance Information

1

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserverd for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
