The era of seemingly unlimited growth in processor performance is over: single chip architectures can no longer overcome the performance limitations imposed by the power they consume and the heat they generate. Today, Intel and other semiconductor firms are abandoning the single fast processor model in favor of multi-core microprocessors--chips that combine two or more processors in a single package. In the fourth edition of Computer Architecture, the authors focus on this historic shift, increasing their coverage of multiprocessors and exploring the most effective ways of achieving parallelism as the key to unlocking the power of multiple processor architectures. Additionally, the new edition has expanded and updated coverage of design topics beyond processor performance, including power, reliability, availability, and dependability.

In order to compensate for the lost coverage resulting from non-redundantly executing cache misses and their dependent instructions, we leverage existing temporal redundancy techniques that replicate miss-dependent computation within a single pipeline. Finally, we show that our design naturally extends beyond two cores to provide further performance gains while adding error recovery capabilities as well.
