Throughput computing, achieved through multithreading and multicore technology, can lead to performance improvements that are 10 to 30× those of conventional processors and systems. However, such systems should also offer good single-thread performance. Here, the authors show that hardware scouting increases the performance of an already robust core by up to 40 percent for commercial benchmarks.
