Chapter 1 -- Introduction to the 80386

The 80386 is an advanced 32-bit microprocessor optimized for multitasking operating systems and designed for applications needing very high performance. The 32-bit registers and data paths support 32-bit addresses and data types. The processor can address up to four gigabytes of physical memory and 64 terabytes (2^(46) bytes) of virtual memory. The on-chip memory-management facilities include address translation registers, advanced multitasking hardware, a protection mechanism, and paged virtual memory. Special debugging registers provide data and code breakpoints even in ROM-based software.
