This paper presents a cost-effective and high-performance dual-thread VLIW processor model. The dual-thread VLIW processor model is a low-cost subset of the Weld architecture paradigm. It supports one main thread and one speculative thread running simultaneously in a VLIW processor with a register file and a fetch unit per thread along with memory disambiguation hardware for speculative load and store operations. This paper analyzes the performance impact of the dual-thread VLIW processor… CONTINUE READING
