Here are my specs:

Intel Architecture Code Analyzer

Hi everyone,

I am new here and it is my first post on this forum.

I just started using intel Architecture code analyzer (IACA) and when I tried to run it I had the following error as output:

"Initialization failed"

I looked in the Intel Documentation but I didn't find this error in their List.

Any kind of help will be really appreciated.

Many Thanks,

I'm compiling work experience for a promotion and want to link to a specific project I worked on, Have Time Will Travel, which won the Intel Level Up 2010. The link I have that displays the winners is here:

Effective Address calculation time on 8086/8088 [old school]

I've started to implement a 8086/8088 with the goal of being cycle-exact. I can understand the reasoning behind the number of clock cycles for most instructions, however I must say I'm quite puzzled by the Effective Address (EA) calculation time.

More specifically, why does computing BP + DI or BX + SI take 7 cycles, but computing BP + SI or BX + DI take 8 cycles?

requirement to log in and restart forum every time

The new "feature" where we are logged out automatically and must enter the forum, log in, then reenter the forum, is irksome.  If this is intended as a way to slow down the spam temporarily, I suppose it won't be long before it fails.

I have this same problem on various browsers and various OS (I access the forum from Windows, Android, and linux).

PCIe Root Complex and the PCH

Hello All,

I have a question that's been bugging me regarding the PCIe Root Complex and the PCH and I'm hoping someone will be able to help clear things up a bit.

I've always presumed that the PCIe Root Complex was a combination of the CPU and the PCH as they both contain PCIe Root Ports, thereby connecting PCIe devices to CPU/memory.

FRSTOR Floating-Point Exceptions

I am writing an RTOS and I have some questions about Floating-Point Exceptions generated by the FRSTOR instruction.

The Intel® 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer’s Manual  Volume 2 says that the FRSTOR instruction "might unmask an existing exception that has been detected but not generated, because it was masked. Here, the exception is generated at the completion of the instruction." I have 2 questions related to this:

1) What address will the EIP be when the exception occurs (the FRSTOR instruction or next instruction)?
