Multicore has shown significant performance and power advantages over single cores in commercial systems with a 2--4 cores. Applying a corollary of Moore's Law for multicore, we expect to see 1K multicore chips within a decade. 1K multicore systems introduce significant architectural challenges. One of these is the power efficiency challenge. Today's cores consume 10's of watts. Even at about one watt per core, a 1K-core chip would need to dissipate 1K watts! This paper discusses the "Kill rule… CONTINUE READING
