Sorting a list of input numbers is one of the most fundamental problems in the field of computer science in general and high-throughput database applications in particular. Although literature abounds with various flavors of sorting algorithms, different architectures call for customized implementations to achieve faster sorting times. This paper presents(More)
Future, more powerful, computers should interact with users to assess their needs, locate the data to meet those needs and process the data so it becomes understandable to the user. ABSTRACT | This paper examines the growing need for a general-purpose Banalytics engine[ that can enable next-generation processing platforms to effectively model events,(More)
This paper compares the energy efficiency of chip multiprocessing (CMP) and simultaneous multithreading (SMT) on modern out-of-order processors for the increasingly important multimedia applications. Since performance is an important metric for real-time multimedia applications, we compare configurations at <b>equal performance</b>. We perform this(More)

H.264 is an emerging video coding standard, which aims at compressing high-quality video contents at low bit-rates. While the new encoding and decoding processes are similar to many previous standards, the new standard includes a number of new features and thus requires much more computation than most existing standards do. The complexity of H.264 standard(More)
