Initial Observations of the Simultaneous Multithreading Pentium 4 Processor

  title={Initial Observations of the Simultaneous Multithreading Pentium 4 Processor},
  author={Nathan Tuck and Dean M. Tullsen},
  booktitle={IEEE PACT},
This paper analyzes an Intel Pentium 4 hyper-threading processor. The focus is to understand its performance and the underlying reasons behind that performance. Particularattention is paid to putting the processor in context with prior published research in simultaneous multithreading ¿ validating and re-evaluating, where appropriate, how this processor performs relative to expectations. Results include multiprogrammed speedup,parallel speedup, as well as synchronization and communication… CONTINUE READING
