Meta CPU simultaneous multithreading: AMA (Automatic MIPS Allocation) example

Imagination’s Meta CPU: advanced simultaneous multithreading

       

In today’s increasingly competitive landscape, edging out other solutions both in benchmarks and in actual real life usage scenarios becomes a matter of efficiently combining the resources at hand to achieve the much-sought higher performance rather than relying on just one factor or performance metric. Therefore, after returning from a successful 2012 Linley Tech 6th […]

Real-time in no time: how multithreading and intelligent scheduling can work together.

     

Fresh from ECN we have an article by Paul Evans on Real-time apps using multi-threads describing how hardware multithreading proves to be a more effective solution to traditional CPUs by  delivering real time response while taking into account the three key elements for consumer electronics: low power, low cost and small silicon area. Having a […]
