With the increasing gap between processor and memory performance, many applications are experiencing a mismatch between time spent performing useful computation versus idling while a memory access completes. This talk will present preliminary work on a hardware architecture to take advantage of this mismatch to reduce energy consumption of applications, while incurring a bounded degradation in performance.

Phillip Stanley-Marbell is a first year PhD student in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon, working under Prof. Diana Marculescu. His research interests include microarhitectures for power-aware systems, virtual machines and mobile code.
