Over the last few years, the information technology industry has witnessed revolutions in multiple dimensions. Increasing ubiquitous sources of data have posed two connected challenges to data management solutions – processing unprecedented volumes of data, and providing ad-hoc real-time analysis in mainstream production data stores without compromising(More)
The era of billion transistor chips is fast approaching, and the emerging trend is to use these transistors to integrate multiple processors onto a single chip. In this paper, we explore the core design for a chip multiprocessor (CMP). We have found that out-of-order cores provide better absolute performance than in-order cores, both for commercial and(More)
