Early Access ArticlesEarly Access articles are made available in advance of the final electronic or print versions. Early Access articles are peer reviewed but may not be fully edited. They are fully citable from the moment they appear in IEEE Xplore.
Racetrack memories (RTMs) have drawn considerable attention from computer architects of late. Owing to their SRAM's comparable access latency and ultra-high capacity, RTMs are promising candidates to revolutionize the memory subsystem. In order to evaluate their performance and appraise their suitability at various levels in the memory hierarchy, it is crucial to have RTM-specific simulation tools... View full abstract»
The tremendous impact of deep learning algorithms over a wide range of application domains has encouraged a surge of neural network (NN) accelerator research. An evolving benchmark suite and its associated benchmark method are needed to incorporate emerging NN models and characterize NN workloads. In this paper, we propose a novel approach to understand the performance characteristic of NN workloa... View full abstract»
Web browsing is an important application domain, but it imposes a significant power burden on mobile devices. While the heterogeneous multi-core design offers the potential for energy-efficient computing, existing web browsers fail to exploit the hardware to optimize mobile web browsing. Our work aims to offer a better way to optimize web browsing on heterogeneous mobile devices. We achieve this b... View full abstract»
Aims & Scope
IEEE Computer Architecture Letters is a rigorously peer-reviewed forum for publishing early, high-impact results in the areas of uni- and multiprocessor computer systems, computer architecture, microarchitecture, workload characterization, performance evaluation and simulation techniques, and power-aware computing.
