Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

This course discusses advanced topics in computer architecture beyond the material that is covered in undergraduate courses such as ECE 4750/CS 4420. In particular, the course places special focus on multicore and multiprocessor architectures (coherence, consistency, synchronization, interconnects, OS support, etc.), as well as advanced architecture techniques (simultaneous multithreading, speculative loads and stores, neural branch predictors, hardware resource management, memory scheduling, etc.) Students work on parallel programming assignments that emphasize hardware-aware performance optimization.

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: ECE 4750 or CS 4420.
