Utilizing Dark Silicon to Save Energy with Computational Sprinting
Computational sprinting activates dark silicon to improve responsiveness by briefly but intensely exceeding a system's sustainable power limit. This article focuses on the energy implications of sprinting. Read full article »
A Landscape of the New Dark Silicon Design Regime
Because of the breakdown of Dennard scaling, large fractions of chips are effectively "dark silicon," significantly underclocked or idle for large periods of time. This shift brings about new architectural techniques, four of which are discussed here. Additionally, the author proposes a set of evolutionary dark silicon design principles based on one of the "darkest" computing architectures of all: the human brain. Read full
