  • Runahead threads to improve SMT performance 

    Ramirez Garcia, Tanausú; Pajuelo González, Manuel Alejandro; Santana Jaria, Oliverio J.; Valero Cortés, Mateo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this paper, we propose Runahead Threads (RaT) as a valuable solution for both reducing resource contention and exploiting memory-level parallelism in Simultaneous Multithreaded (SMT) processors. Our technique converts ...
