A register file is a critical component of a modern superscalar processor. It has a large number of entries and read/write ports in order to enable high levels of instruction parallelism. As a result, the register file's area, access time, and energy consumption increase dramatically, significantly affecting the overall superscalar processor's performance and energy consumption. This is especially true in 64-bit processors. This paper presents a new integer register file organization, which… CONTINUE READING
