Future works

  • Caching
  • pipeline
  • parallelism

Single-processor systems

  * processor performance equation (Yuka)
    - relationship to simple benchmarks (microbenchmarks)
  * pipelining (martian, tuan)
    - work w/ above
    - explain roles of stages in 5-stage MIPS pipeline
    - find # of pipeline stages for various processors
  * Memory subsystems: (Ped(r)o, Mr. Sunshine, Tuan)
    - cache and cache performance
      (one-level cache, two-level cache, with equations;
      four questions)
    - virtual memory address translation

Multiprocessor systems

  * Flynn's taxonomy (sayyornara windows)
  * Amdahl's Law, Gustafson-Barsis Law (johnny boy)
  
  
  * GPUs and data-level parallelism (Mr. Sunshine)
    - programming model
      (SIMD?  synchronization with CPU?)
    - data flow (bus, graphics memory)
  * I/O devices (Mr. Alohashirt)
    - esp. flash memory (basic physics, performance characteristics,
      device capacity and density trends)
