On current superscalar processors, performance and power issues cannot be decoupled for designers. Extensive simulations are usually required to meet both power and performance constraints. This paper describes an integrated performance and power analytical model. The model's performance and power results are in good agreement with detailed simulations, previous models and physically measured results. For designers, the model enables quick and flexible explorations into a subset of even entire
