Software-Defined CPU Modes

CPUs contain a compute instruction set, which regular applications use. This paper explores the question, whether CPU modes could be defined entirely by software. Researchers show how such a design would function and explore the advantages it enables. They believe that pushing all existing modes under a common design umbrella would enforce a cleaner structure and more control over exposed functionality. At the same time, the flexibility of software-defined modes enables interesting new use cases.

Dual Vector Load for Improved Pipelining in Vector Processors

Vector processors execute instructions that manipulate vectors of data items using time-division multiplexing (TDM). In this paper, the researchers propose a dual vector load: A parallel or interleaved load of the two input vectors. Their investigation finds that compute-bound and some memory-bound applications profit from this feature when the memory and compute bandwidths are sufficiently high. A speedup of up to 33 % is possible in the ideal case.
