Talk Title: Multiprocessor Architectures for Speculat
One of the biggest challenges f
acing computer architecture
today is the design of parallel architecture
s that make it
easy for programmers to write parallel codes. One of the<
br>architectural technologies that is showing great versatility
ntial in this direction is Speculative Multithreading.
In this talk I w
ill discuss the many uses of this technology
in multiprocessors and its
remarkable potential for perform-
ance and programmability (Thread-Leve
Speculative Synchronization Transactional Memory and
BulkSC) hardware reliability (Paceline) and software
ReEnact and Iwatcher).
