This paper describes the experience of author regarding ENIAC. The ENIAC was indeed of very great size and the team, under the leadership of Presper Eckert, began to realize that by taking an improved approach, a much more powerful computer-one-tenth of the size of the ENIAC-could be built. This, as everyone now knows, led to the EDVAC report and, after a long evolution, to the modern computer.

TLDR
This work shows that on modern micro architectures it is necessary to also take the requirements of the Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) programming paradigm and data prefetching into account to reach high efficiencies. Expand
