While it has long been argued that near-threshold (~0.5V) operation of CMOS technologies can dramatically improve power efficiency, widespread application of such low voltage operation to VLSI systems has yet to materialize. This is due in part to practical system workload demands, in which single-thread performance needs can limit strategies to improve parallelizeable throughput performance, but also due to barriers in the ability of supporting hardware to counter variability and reliability… CONTINUE READING
