The Raw microprocessor consumes 122 million transistors, executes 16 different load, store, integer or floating point instructions every cycle, controls 25 GB/s of I/O bandwidth, and has 2 MB of on-chip, distributed L1 SRAM memory, providing on-chip memory bandwidth of 43 GB/s. Is this the latest billion-dollar 3,000 man-year processor effort? In fact, Raw(More)
A computer can never be too fast or too cheap. Computer systems pervade nearly every aspect of science, engineering, communications and commerce because they perform certain tasks at rates unachievable by any other kind of system built by humans. A computer sys-tem's throughput, however, is constrained by that sys-tem's ability to find concurrency. Given a(More)
