High-performance and power-efficient multimedia
computing drives the design of modern and increasingly utilized
mobile devices. State-of-the-art low power processors already utilize
chip multiprocessors (CMP) that add dedicated DLP accelerators
for emerging multimedia applications and 3D games. Such
heterogeneous processors deliver desired performance and efficiency
at the cost of extra hardware specialized accelerators. In this paper,
we propose dynamically-tuned vector execution (DVX) by morphing
one or more available cores in a CMP into a DLP accelerator. DVX
improves performance and power efficiency of the CMP, without
additional costs for dedicated accelerators.
