AMD Zen chip.

Thursday, September 15, 2016

AMD has publicly disclosed details of its upcoming Zen microprocessor, which will shipped in desktops, laptops, servers, and CPU-GPU systems in 2017. One of their innovations is a mechanism to improve the performance of TLBs, an important hardware component in modern chips. This “coalescing” TLB mechanism is inspired by Prof. Bhattacharjee and his group’s research and papers at MICRO 2012 and HPCA 2014.
