PLUS is a multiprocessor architecture tailored to the fast execution of a single multithreaded process; its goal is to accelerate the execution of CPU-bound applications. PLUS supports shared memory and efficient synchronization. Memory access latency is reduced by non-demand replication of pages with hardware-supported coherence between replicated pages. The architecture has been simulated in detail and the paper presents some of the key measurements that have been used to substantiate our… CONTINUE READING
