Abstract
The era of multi-core processors has begun. These multi- core processors represent a significant shift in processor design. This shift is a change in the design focus from reducing individual program (thread) latency to improving overall workload throughput. For over three decades, programs automatically ran faster on each new generation of processor because of improvements to processor performance. However, in this last decade, many of the techniques for improving processor performance reached their end. As a result, individual core performance has become stagnant, causing diminished performance gains for programs which are single-threaded. This dissertation fo...
