Abstract

© 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Multicore architectures were introduced to mitigate the issue of increase in power dissipation with clock frequency. Introduction of deeper pipelines, speculative threading etc. for single core systems were not able to bring much increase in performance as compared to their associated power overhead. However for multicore architectures performance scaling with number of cores has always been a challenge. The Amdahl's law shows that the theoretical maximum speedup of a multicore architecture is not even close to the multiple of number of cores. With less amount of code in parallel having more number of cores for an application might just contribute in greater power dissipation instead of bringing some performance advantage. Therefore there is a need of an adaptive multicore architecture that can be tailored for the application in use for higher energy efficiency. In this paper a fuzzy logic based design space exploration technique is presented that is targeted to optimize a multicore architecture according to the workload requirements in order to achieve optimum balance between throughput and energy of the system.
