    • An optimized predication execution for SIMD extensions 

      Barredo Ferreira, Adrián; Cebrián González, Juan Manuel; Moreto Planas, Miquel; Casas Guix, Marc; Valero Cortés, Mateo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      Vector processing is a widely used technique to improve performance and energy efficiency in modern processors. Most of them rely on predication to support divergence control. However, performance and energy consumption ...
    • Efficiency analysis of modern vector architectures: vector ALU sizes, core counts and clock frequencies 

      Barredo Ferreira, Adrián; Cebrián González, Juan Manuel; Valero Cortés, Mateo; Casas Guix, Marc; Moreto Planas, Miquel (2020-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      Moore’s Law predicted that the number of transistors on a chip would double approximately every 2 years. However, this trend is arriving at an impasse. Optimizing the usage of the available transistors within the thermal ...
    • POSTER: SPiDRE: accelerating sparse memory access patterns 

      Barredo Ferreira, Adrián; Beard, Jonathan C.; Moreto Planas, Miquel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      Development in process technology has led to an exponential increase in processor speed and memory capacity. However, memory latencies have not improved as dramatically and represent a well-known problem in computer ...
    • Semi-automatic validation of cycle-accurate simulation infrastructures: The case for gem5-x86 

      Cebrián González, Juan Manuel; Barredo Ferreira, Adrián; Caminal Pallarés, Helena; Moreto Planas, Miquel; Casas Guix, Marc; Valero Cortés, Mateo (Elsevier, 2020-11)
