Evaluating the Power Efficiency and Performance of Multi-core Platforms Using HEP Workloads

As Moore’s Law drives the silicon industry towards higher transistor counts, processor designs are becoming more and more complex. The area of development includes core count, execution ports, vector units, uncore architecture and finally instruction sets. This increasing complexity leads us to a place where access to the shared memory is the major limiting factor, resulting in feeding the cores...
