The book assumes that the reader is familiar with the main concepts regarding pipelining, out-of-order execution, cache memories, and virtual memory. Table of Contents: Introduction / Caches / The Instruction Fetch Unit / Decode / Allocation / The Issue Stage / Execute / The Commit Stage / References / Author Biographies. This book carefully details design tools and techniques for high-performance ASIC design. Using these techniques, the performance of ASIC designs can be improved by two to three times. Important topics include: Improving performance through microarchitecture; Timing-driven floorplanning; Controlling and exploiting clock skew; High performance.

In your example, the out-of-order 3 will lead to a branch-misprediction (for appropriate conditions, where 3 gives a different result than ), and thus processing that array will likely take a couple dozen or hundred nanoseconds longer than a sorted array would, hardly ever noticeable.

Techniques for reducing the misprediction recovery latency in out-of-order processors by Patrick E. Akl Download PDF EPUB FB2

Several techniques have been proposed for efficient recovery such as checkpoint processing and recovery [1], history buffer recovery [2], eager misprediction recovery [3], etc. The key idea of. In computer engineering, out-of-order execution (or more formally dynamic execution) is a paradigm used in most high-performance central processing units to make use of instruction cycles that would otherwise be wasted.

In this paradigm, a processor executes instructions in an order governed by the availability of input data and execution units, rather than by their original order in a program. In computer architecture, a branch predictor is a digital circuit that tries to guess which way a branch (e.g.

an if–then–else structure) will go before this is known purpose of the branch predictor is to improve the flow in the instruction predictors play a critical role in achieving high effective performance in many modern pipelined microprocessor.

gressive out-of-order execution is possible while using less energy than out-of-order RISC or CISC designs. The intra-block data-flow encodings push much of the run-time de-pendence graph construction to the compiler, reducing the energy required to support out-of-order execution through construction and traversal of those graphs.
