EE380 Computer Systems Colloquium: Dynamic Code Optimization and the NVIDIA Denver Processor

Topic: 
Dynamic Code Optimization and the NVIDIA Denver Processor
Wednesday, March 4, 2015 - 4:15pm to 5:15pm
Venue: 
Gates B03
Speaker: 
Nathan Tuck (NVIDIA)
Abstract / Description: 

VIDIA's first 64-bit ARM processor, code-named Denver, leverages a host of new technologies to enable high-performance mobile computing. Implemented in a 28-nm process, the Denver CPU can attain clock speeds of up to 2.5 GHz. This talk will outline the Denver architecture and describe some of its technological innovations. In particular this talk will discuss some of the motivations and advantages of dynamic code optimization.
