This paper describes an integrated network-on-chip architecture containing 80 tiles arranged as an 8x10 2-D array of floating-point cores and packet-switched routers, both designed to operate at 4 GHz. Each tile has two pipelined single-precision floating-point multiply accumulators (FPMAC) which feature a single-cycle accumulation loop for high throughput. The on-chip 2-D mesh network provides a bisection bandwidth of 2 Terabits/s. The 15-FO4 design employs mesochronous clocking, fine-grained clock gating, dynamic sleep transistors, and body-bias techniques. In a 65-nm eight-metal CMOS process, the 275 mm2 custom design contains 100 M transistors. The fully functional first silicon achieves over 1.0 TFLOPS of performance on a range of benchmarks while dissipating 97 W at 4.27 GHz and 1.07 V supply.
