Multiprogramming Performance of the Pentium 4 with Hyper-Threading

  title={Multiprogramming Performance of the Pentium 4 with Hyper-Threading},
  author={James R. Bulpin and Ian Pratt}
Simultaneous multithreading (SMT) is a very fine grained form of hardware multithreading that allows simultaneous execution of more than one thread without the notion of an internal context switch. The fine grained sharing of processor resources means that threads can impact each others’ performance. Tuck and Tullsen first published measurements of the performance of the SMT Pentium 4 processor with Hyper-Threading [12]. Of particular interest is their evaluation of the multiprogrammed… CONTINUE READING
