Chip Multiprocessor Architecture: Techniques to Improve Throughput and Latency
Chip Multiprocessor Architecture: Techniques to Improve Throughput and Latency
Chip multiprocessors — also called multi-core microprocessors or CMPs for short — are now the only way to build high-performance microprocessors, for a variety of reasons. Large uniprocessors are no longer scaling in performance, because it is only possible to extract a limited amount of parallelism from a typical instruction stream...
