SUN’s UltraSparc T1 - the Next Generation Server CPUs

@ 2005/12/29
Introduction SUN’s Ultrasparc T1, formerly known as Niagara, is much more than just a new UltraSparc. It is the harbinger of a new generation of CPUs, which focus almost solely on Thread Level Parallelism. No less than 32 independent parts of a different program (threads) can be “in flight” on the chip. It is SUN’s first implementation of their Throughput computing philosophy, and it is compared to what we are used to in the AMD/Intel world, a pretty extreme architecture that focuses on network and server performance.
