ABSTRACT
Building a large-scale CMP platform requires a deep investigation of core performance impact, cache hierarchy implications, and on-die and off-die bandwidth requirements. Fundamental challenges in such an evaluation are simulation speed and flexibility. ManySim, a trace-based simulation infrastructure, provides first-order architectural insights into LCMP platforms' performance potential and scalability bottlenecks.
INDEX TERMS
