Energy and temperature are the main constraints for modern high-performance multi-core systems. To save power or increase performance, Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS) is widely applied in industry. As CMOS technology continues scaling, FinFET has recently become the common choice for multi-core systems. In contrast with planar CMOS, FinFET is(More)
Near-threshold computing has emerged as a promising solution to significantly increase the energy efficiency of next-generation multicore systems. This paper evaluates and analyzes the behavior of dynamic voltage and frequency scaling for multicore systems operating under extended range: including near-threshold, nominal, and turbo modes. We adapt the model(More)
Power and thermal issues are the main constraints for highperformance multi-core systems. As the current technology of choice, FinFET is observed to have lower delay under higher temperature in super-threshold voltage region, an effect called temperature effect inversion (TEI). While it has been shown that system performance can be improved under power(More)
How much energy is consumed for an inference made by a convolutional neural network (CNN)?” With the increased popularity of CNNs deployed on the wide-spectrum of platforms (from mobile devices to workstations), the answer to this question has drawn significant attention. From lengthening battery life of mobile devices to reducing the energy bill of a(More)
While selecting the hyper-parameters of Neural Networks (NNs) has been so far treated as an art, the emergence of more complex, deeper architectures poses increasingly more challenges to designers and Machine Learning (ML) practitioners, especially when power and memory constraints need to be considered. In this work, we propose HyperPower, a framework that(More)
Energy and temperature are the main constraints for modern high-performance multicore systems. To save power or increase performance, dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) is widely applied in literally all computing systems. As CMOS technology continues scaling, FinFET has recently become the common choice for multicore systems. In contrast with(More)
