Much of the improvement in computer performance over the last twenty years has come from faster transistors and architectural advances that increase parallelism. Historically, parallelism has been exploited either at the instruction level with a grain-size of a single instruction or by partitioning applications into coarse threads with grain-sizes of thousands of instructions. Fine-grain threads fill the parallelism gap between these extremes by enabling tasks with run lengths as small as 20doi:10.1109/isca.1998.694790 dblp:conf/isca/KecklerDMCCL98 fatcat:tvl3jqhc6feybightugwxy32cu
