Advances in s
emiconductor process technology allow hundreds
of millions of transisto
rs to be integrated on a single
chip. Intel?s 90 nm technology Montecit
o chip was the first
billion transistor chip featuring dual cores and l
in 2005. Nanotechnology that continues to drive Moore?s
Law provides a doubling of the transistor density every
two years. Mult
i-core chips will become common not only
in high-end servers but also i
n desktop and mobile PCs.
Multi-core processors present several chal
to on-chip system architecture power management reliab
and software scaling. This talk will touch upon some of
e challenges and discuss some possible solutions.
. Bhandarkar is an IEEE Fellow and a Distinguished Alumnus
of the Indi
an Institute of Technology Bombay where he
received his B. Tech in El
ectrical Engineering in 1970.
He also has a M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrica
l Engineering from
Carnegie Mellon University and has done graduate wo
Business Administration at the University of Dallas.
currently Director of the Enterprise Architecture
Lab in processors an
d chipsets. He has been with Intel since
1995 and has managed system ar
chitecture and performance
analysis activities. Prior to joining Intel
he spent almost
18 years at Digital Equipment Corporation where he ma
processor and system architecture and performance analysis
ork related to the VAX Prism MIPS and Alpha architectures.
He also w
orked at Texas Instruments for 4 years in their
research labs in a vari
ety of areas including magnetic bubble
memories charge coupled devices
fault tolerant memories
and computer architecture.
