PLUS is a multiprocessor architecture tailored to the fast execution of a single multithreaded process; its goal is to accelerate the execution of CPU-bound applications. PLUS supports shared memory and efficient synchronization. Memory access latency is reduced by nondemand replication of pages with hardware-supported coherence between replicated pages. The architecture has been simulated in detail, and some of the key measurements that have been used to substantiate the architectural decisions are presented. The current implementation of PLUS is also described
