We’ve just published our latest article, an interview with Sun
Distinguished Engineer Dr. Marc Tremblay. Dr. Tremblay was the
co-architect of Sun’s first 64-bit processor, the UltraSPARC-I and served
as chief architect for the UltraSPARC-II and the dual-core MAJC project.
He is currently working on a highly multithreaded processor expected to
deliver 30 times the throughput of the current 1.2 GHz UltraSPARC III.
He sits down with us to talk about the architectural details of on-chip
multithreading, on-chip multiprocessing, high-bandwidth memory interfaces,
and shares his insight on how CPU architects will target server workloads
in the future. Check out the link below for the interview:
