This page lists publically available datasheets and programming guides from various vendors. It includes CPU, chipset, Super I/O, and many other datasheets.

x86 architecture

AMD

AMD provides their AMD64 Architecture and Software manuals, which are a very useful reference for AMD systems, of course (but also explain lots of non-AMD-specific x86 stuff too):

Other AMD documents:

Intel

Intel provides their Intel® 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developer's Manuals which are a very useful reference to the x86 architecture in general:

CPU

AMD

AMD Fam11h

AMD Fam10h

Opteron:

Phenom:

AMD K8

Athlon64/Opteron:

Opteron:

Family 0Fh:

Athlon64

Socket specs

Misc

VIA

VIA Padlock

Northbridge

AMD

AMD RS690

AMD RS780

Apparently there are other docs as well, not sure if they provide any additional information or if they are part of the public documents above:

  • AMD RD780 Register Reference Guide
  • AMD RX780 Register Reference Guide
  • AMD RS780M Hybrid Graphics – System BIOS Detailed Design Document (Publication #44969)
  • AMD RD790 Register Programming Requirements (Publication #42462)
  • AMD RD790 Register Reference Guide (Publication #42988)
  • AMD RD790 BIOS Developer's Guide (Publication #43093)

AMD RD890

Not public (yet?). However, some of the information may be contained in the public docs in the RS780 section.

  • AMD RD890 BIOS Developer's Guide (Publication #43606)
  • AMD RD890 Register Reference Guide (Publication #43607)

Intel

Intel 440BX

Intel 440LX

Intel 82815E

VIA

VIA has a portal with some source code and datasheets.

VIA CX700M/VX700

VIA VX800

Southbridge

AMD

AMD SB600

AMD SB700/SB710/SB750

AMD SB800

Not available yet, but here are the numbers for the documents we'd like to get. I found these numbers with a creative internet search.

  • AMD SB800 Databook (Publication #44758)

Intel

Intel 82801BA/BAM (ICH2)

Super I/O

ITE

Winbond / Nuvoton

Fintek

NSC

(bought by Winbond, now Nuvoton)

ALi

SMSC

Other

ACPI

USB

Misc

Resources

There are many datasheet archives on the web which may have other (usually older) datasheets which already disappeared from vendor websites.
