The proceedings of the February 2005 symposium consists of 28 regular papers on processor architecture, thermal considerations, communication architectures, energy and power, memory system issues, evaluation methodologies, software debugging support, and multithreading Multitasking within a single program. It allows multiple streams of execution to take place concurrently within the same program, each stream processing a different transaction or message. , and five short papers from industry. Topics include checkpointed early load retirement, the limits of leakage power reduction in caches, a performance comparison of DRAM memory system optimizations for SMT (1) (Surface Mount Technology) See surface mount.
