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
Sammanfattning : Providing a consistent view of the shared memory based on precise and well-defined semantics—memory consistency model—has been an enabling factor in the widespread acceptance and commercial success of shared-memory architectures. Moreover, cache coherence protocols have been employed by the hardware to remove from the programmers the burden of dealing with the memory inconsistency that emerges in the presence of the private caches. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis proposes novel, efficient execution-paradigms for parallel heterogeneous architectures. The end of Dennard scaling is threatening the effectiveness of DVFS in future nodes; therefore, new execution paradigms are required to exploit the non-linear relationship between performance and energy efficiency of memory-bound application-regions. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In the recent decades, power consumption has evolved to one of the most critical resources in a computer system. In the form of electricity bill in data centers, battery life in mobile devices, or thermal constraints in desktops and laptops, power consumption imposes several limitations in today’s processors and improving power and energy efficiency is one of the most urgent research topics of Computer Architecture.
