1.1 About the models

Programmer’s View (PV) models of processors and devices work at a level where functional behavior is equivalent to what a programmer would see using the hardware.

They sacrifice timing accuracy to achieve fast simulation execution speeds: you can use the PV models for confirming software functionality, but you must not rely on the accuracy of cycle counts, low-level component interactions, or other hardware-specific behavior.
