In the evolving submicron technology, making it particularly attractive to use decentralized designs. A common form of decentralization adopted in processors is to partition the execution core into multiple clusters. Each cluster has a small instruction window, and a set of functional units. A number of algorithms have been proposed for distributing instructions among the clusters. The first part of this paper analyzes (qualitatively as well as quantitatively) the effect of various hardware… CONTINUE READING
