Abstract
In this paper, we present a vector execution model that provides the advantages of vector processors on low power, general purpose cores, with limited additional hardware. While accelerating data-level parallel (DLP) workloads, the vector model increases the efficiency and hardware resources utilization. We use a modest dual issue core based on an Explicit Data Graph Execution (EDGE) architecture to implement our approach, called EVX. Unlike most DLP accelerators which utilize additional hardwar...
