I'd like to get familar with an implemebtaion of modern CPUs. Are there Amy processors with an open-source Hardware Decriprion Language? Perfectlt, I'd like to take a look at Intel/AMD implemebtaion, but Im not sure it is open.

So is there any CPU with an open source decription? I'm loooking for any architecture: x86, Arm, DEC-Aplha, etc...

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes there is. LEON (Sparc) is one. \$\endgroup\$ Apr 8, 2020 at 22:52
  • \$\begingroup\$ I don't think that question should have been closed. It's vague but there are actually valuable answers (about hobby cores vs properly design, clones of legacy CPUs or RISCV, traditional HDLs vs Chisel or Spinal...). \$\endgroup\$

A very quick search brought up OpenRISC - it is in Verilog.
