ABSTRACT
<p>In this point-counterpoint discussion, Trevor Mudge argues for the combination of near-threshold voltage processors with techniques such as boosting to address the needs of datacenter workloads. Urs H&#x00F6;lzle offers a cautionary note on the wisdom of giving up too much single-threaded performance to achieve energy-efficiency in large Internet service applications.</p>
INDEX TERMS
multicore and many-core architectures, energy efficiency, throughput-oriented computing, hardware, near-threshold operation, boosting, nonvolatile memory
