Modern microprocessors are evolving into system-on-a-chip designs with high integration levels, catering to ever-shrinking form factors. Portability without compromising performance is a driving market need. An architectural approach that's adaptive to and cognizant of workload behavior and platform physical constraints is indispensable to meeting these performance and efficiency goals. This article...
