MOM is a novel matrix-oriented ISA paradigm for multimedia applications, based on fusing conventional vector ISAs with SIMD ISAs such as MMX. This paper justifies why MOM is a suitable alternative for the multimedia domain due to its efficiency handling the small matrix structures typically found in most multimedia kernels. MOM leverages a performance boost between 1.3x and 4x over more conventional multimedia extensions (such as MMX and MDMX), which already achieve performance benefits ranging
