Abstract
Increasing wire delays, power consumption and complexity calls for clustered organizations as a main feature of forthcoming microprocessors. In this work we propose novel microarchitecture whose all components, from instruction fetch to instruction commit, are clustered. We propose different approaches to clustering each component with the objective of minimizing replication and inter-cluster communication. The proposed microarchitecture is more scalable than previous centralized or clustered b...
