  • DLP acceleration on general purpose cores 

    Duric, Milovan; Palomar Pérez, Óscar; Unsal, Osman Sabri; Cristal Kestelman, Adrián; Valero Cortés, Mateo (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, 2015-05-05)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    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 ...
  • Dynamic-vector execution on a general purpose EDGE chip multiprocessor 

    Duric, Milovan; Palomar Pérez, Óscar; Smith, Aaron; Stanic, Milan; Unsal, Osman Sabri; Cristal Kestelman, Adrián; Valero Cortés, Mateo; Burger, Doug; Veidenbaum, Alexander V (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)

    This paper proposes a cost-effective technique that morphs the available cores of a low power chip multiprocessor (CMP) into an accelerator for data parallel (DLP) workloads. Instead of adding a special-purpose vector ...
  • Evaluation of vectorization potential of Graph500 on Intel's Xeon Phi 

    Stanic, Milan; Palomar Pérez, Óscar; Ratkovic, Ivan; Duric, Milovan; Unsal, Osman Sabri; Cristal Kestelman, Adrián; Valero Cortés, Mateo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Graph500 is a data intensive application for high performance computing and it is an increasingly important workload because graphs are a core part of most analytic applications. So far there is no work that examines if ...
  • EVX: vector execution on low power EDGE cores 

    Duric, Milovan; Palomar Pérez, Óscar; Smith, Aaron; Unsal, Osman Sabri; Cristal Kestelman, Adrián; Valero Cortés, Mateo; Burger, Doug (European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (EDAA), 2014)
    Conference report
