Parallel Random Access Machine (PRAM) is a popular model for parallel computation that promises easy programmability and great parallel performance, but only if efficient shared main memories can be built. This won't be easy, because the complexity of shared memories leads to difficult technical problems. In this paper we consider the idea of true multiport(More)
Pipelining is used in almost all recent processor architectures to increase the performance. It is, however, difficult to achieve the theoretical speedup of pipelining, because code dependencies cause delays in execution. Processor designers must use complex techniques like forwarding, register renaming and branch prediction to reduce the loss of(More)
