New White Paper: ROCK 32-Scout-Thread CMT

A new ROCK processor paper was delivered at the recent ISSCC 08 (IEEE Solid-State Circuits) Conference by Sun’s Marc Tremblay and Shailender Chaudhry:
“The goals for this high-end commercial microprocessor are high throughput and high single-thread performance, mainframe-class reliability, hardware transactional memory, and linear scalability. We show how these goals are met by the logical and physical design of this 2.3GHz 396mm2 16-core 32-thread plus 32-scout-thread microprocessor.” PDF download


About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
