    7400 Series CPU - Floating Point question

    bcutick

      I received an interesting question from a client regarding the floating point architecture of the 7450 series multi-core CPU.  The question from my customer is:

       

       

      Do the Xeon 7450 CPUs installed in the servers use a shared floating point processor for the cores or does each core have a dedicated floating point processor?"

       

      I found some information in the data sheet for this processor, but nothing that seems to definitively address this.  Anyone able to help me answer this?

       

      Many thank!
