Project description

The goal of the project is to demonstrate the innovation potential of the Forward Slice Core, which is a novel processor core microarchitecture that reorders instructions for fast execution in a hardware-efficient way. Our preliminary results suggest that Forward Slice Core has the potential to improve performance per Watt per euro by 15 times compared to a modern-day high-performance superscalar out-of-order processor. The Forward Slice Core offers interesting opportunities for the mobile, embedded and edge-computing markets.
