Future SoCs will contain multiple cores. For workloads with significant parallelism, prior work has shown the benefit of many small, multi-threaded, scalar cores. For workloads that require better single-thread performance, a dedicated, larger core can help but comes at a large opportunity cost in the number of scalar cores that could be provisioned instead. This paper proposes a way to repurpose a pair of scalar cores into a 2-way out-of-order issue core with minimal area overhead.doi:10.1145/1391469.1391666 dblp:conf/dac/TarjanBS08 fatcat:rc2l2bwq5zcatbwd4j4g3akpwm
