A Comparison of Asymptotically Scalable Superscalar Processors 1

Abstract

The poor scalability of existing superscalar processors has been of great concern to the computer engineering community. In particular, the critical-path lengths of many components in existing implementations grow as where is the fetch width, the issue width, or the window size. This paper describes two scalable processor architectures, the Ultrascalar I… (More)
