Intel Outlines New Tech to Boost Performance of Single-Threaded Software on Multi-Core Chips.

The modern trend of microprocessors’ development is focused around creation of devices with as many cores as possible. However, there are algorithms that cannot benefit from many-core architectures or multi-threading execution. In order to boost performance of single-threaded applications on multi-core microprocessors, Intel Corp. recently outlined the technology called “Anaphase”. Researchers from Intel Labs Barcelona have developed “Anaphase” technology, which is a novel hardware/software hybrid approach to leverage multiple cores in order to improve single-thread performance on multi-core processors. This research focuses on different speculative techniques to automatically partition single thread applications to be processed on multiple cores.
