Challenges of parallel processor design

M. Forsell and V. Leppanen and M. Penttonen

While processor speeds have grown, also the gap between the speed of processing and the speed of accessing data has grown. Therefore the speed of the processor cannot be used. As a reaction, processor industry has started to build more processor cores on a chip, but there is no easy way to utilize multiple processors. In this work we study alternative multicore processor designs that could efficiently run parallel programs.
