This paper presents Simultaneous Speculative Threading (SST), which is a technique for creating high-performance area- and power-efficient cores for chip multiprocessors. SST hardware dynamically extracts two threads of execution from a single sequential program (one consisting of a load miss and its dependents, and the other consisting of the instructions(More)
Microprocessors took over the entire computer industry in the 1970s and 1980s, leading to the phrase “the attack of the killer micros” as a popular topic on the newsgroup comp.arch for many years. We believe that the disruption offered by throughput computing is similar in scope. Over the next several years, we expect chip multithreading (CMT) processors to(More)
