122 million transistors; executes 16 different load, store, integer, or floating-point instructions every cycle; controls 25 Gbytes/s of input/output (I/O) bandwidth; and has 2 Mbytes of on-chip distributed L1 static RAM providing on-chip memory bandwidth of 57 Gbytes/s. Is this the latest billion-dollar, 3,000 man-year processor effort? In fact, it took only a handful of graduate students at the Laboratory for Computer Science at MIT to design and implement Raw. Our research addresses a key… CONTINUE READING
