.:: Addressable Memory ::.

  • The Memory On the Pentium is Byte Addressable. Which means the smallest size that you can get from memory is a byte or 8 bits.

  • The Pentium uses a Little-Endian memory organization. This means the least significant byte comes first and the most significant byte comes last.
  • The 16 bit chips are organized in a two memory system and in the 32 bit chips it is organized in a 4 memory system. This means that the memory is stored in separte blocks.
