Does anyone have any intimate knowledge of the design layout of the logic "core" found in the Northbridge chipset used in computer motherboards (desktop and laptops) ? This chipset is made by Intel and AMD respectively at the present.
Would it have just a single core or multi cores ? Where on die would this logic core be located near the top layer ? Could anyone tell me how does this core get executed or run on power on or reset of the device ? Where would the circuit code on die be located that executes this core and makes it active ?
