General-purpose architectures for media processing and database workloads
Workloads on general-purpose computing systems have changed dramatically over the past few years, with greater emphasis on emerging compute-intensive applications such as media processing and databases. However, until recently, most high performance computing studies have primarily focused on scientific and engineering workloads, potentially leading ...
An evaluation of memory consistency models for shared-memory systems with ILP processors
The memory consistency model of a shared-memory multiprocessor determines the extent to which memory operations may be overlapped or reordered for better performance. Studies on previous-generation shared-memory multiprocessors have shown that relaxed memory consistency models like release consistency (RC) can significantly outperform the conceptually ...
