There’s Life in the Old Dog Yet: How Advances in von Neumann Architectures Still Have a Lot to Give

With the slowing of Moore’s Law, the end of Dennard Scaling, and the apparent stalling of increases in instruction level parallelism in modern superscalar, out-of-order computer architectures, one would be forgiven for concluding that the von Neumann architecture has run out of steam.

In this talk we will present evidence that there are still considerable gains coming from current approaches, and we shall describe the techniques that are showing the greatest promise.
