Computer Architecture: A quantitative approach - Cap4 - Section 8

  1. 1. Multiprocessors and Thread-Level Parallelism Putting it all together: Sun T1 Multiprocessor “ What makes T1 especially interesting is that it is almost totally focused on exploiting thread-level parallelism (TLP) rather than instruction-level parallelism (ILP).” Hennessy and Patterson
  2. 2. <ul><li>Thread level parallelism </li></ul><ul><li>8 processors, 4 threads each </li></ul><ul><li>Six-stage , single-issue pipeline </li></ul>Sun T1 “Niagra” Multiprocessor
  3. 3. Sun T1 “Niagra” Multiprocessor
