  • Learn at Your Pace - MindShare eLearning courses are self-paced, so you can proceed when you're ready
  • Access to the Instructor - Ask questions to the MindShare Instructor that taught the course

You Will Learn:

  • What the MESIF cache coherency states are
  • How Source Snooping is different from Home Snooping
  • How packets are broken down into Flits and Phits to be sent across an Intel QPI link
  • About virtual channels, flow control, retries, etc.
  • How addresses are mapped across multiple nodes and how packets are routed to the appropriate node
  • What protocol agents are and their purpose including the types of messages that are passed between them

Who Should View?

This course is perfect for anyone looking for a fundamental understanding of the Intel QPI Architecture.

Course Outline:

  • Intel QPI Features
