• The Pentium can switch between four different memory management modes.
  • The pentium normally uses a Segmented memory organization.
  • The Pentium's memory is byte addressable
  • The Pentium's address length is 32-bits so it can support up to 4 Gigabytes without segmentation and 64 Terabytes with segmentation.
  • The Pentium's memory is divided up into segments.
  • Each segment register can hold a 16 bit address so each segment is 64KB.
  • Each register holds the address of the top of the segment.
  • The Pentium uses Segmentation normally over paging because the hardware of the CPU is made to support segmentation specificly.
