Sammanfattning : To increase performance, modern processors employ complex techniques such as out-of-order pipelines and deep cache hierarchies. While the increasing complexity has paid off in performance, it has become harder to accurately predict the effects of hardware/software optimizations in such systems. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Memory accesses in modern processors are both far slower and vastly more energy-expensive than the actual computations. To improve performance, processors spend a significant amount of energy and resources trying to hide and reduce the memory latency. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : A considerably fraction of science discovery is nowadays relying on computer simulations. High Performance Computing (HPC) provides scientists with the means to simulate processes ranging from climate modeling to protein folding. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Out-of-order execution is one of the main micro-architectural techniques used to improve the performance of both single- and multi-threaded processors. The application of such a processor varies from mobile devices to server computers. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Low-latency data access is essential for performance. To achieve this, processors use fast first-level caches combined with out-of-order execution, to decrease and hide memory access latency respectively. LÄS MER
