Improving Processor Efficiency by Statically Pipelining. In computer engineering, out-of-order execution (or more formally dynamic execution) is a paradigm used in most high-performance central processing units to make use of instruction cycles that would otherwise be wasted. Figure 2 depicts a classical five-stage pipeline. Instructions spend one cycle in each stage of the pipeline, which are separated by pipeline registers. Along with increased performance, pipelining introduces a few inefficiencies into a processor. First of all is the need to latch information between pipeline stages.

Computer Organization and Architecture Pipelining Set. In this paradigm, a processor executes instructions in an order governed by the availability of input data and execution units, In doing so, the processor can avoid being idle while waiting for the preceding instruction to complete and can, in the meantime, process the next instructions that are able to run immediately and independently. Pleszkun, published in 1985 completed the scheme by describing how the precise behavior of exceptions could be maintained in out-of-order machines.

Concept of Pipelining Computer Architecture Tutorial. Out-of-order execution is a restricted form of data flow computation, which was a major research area in computer architecture in the 1970s and early 1980s. Arguably the first machine to use out-of-order execution is the CDC 6600 (1964), which uses a scoreboard to resolve conflicts (although in modern usage, such scoreboarding is considered to be in-order execution, not out-of-order execution, since such machines stall on the first RAW conflict – strictly speaking, such machines initiate execution in-order, although they may complete execution out-of-order). Pipelining is the process of accumulating instruction from the processor through a pipeline. It allows storing and executing instructions in an orderly process. It is also known as pipeline processing. Pipelining is a technique where multiple instructions are overlapped during execution.

Computer Architecture and System Important academic research in this subject was led by Yale Patt and his HPSm simulator. About three years later, the IBM System/360 Model 91 (1966) introduced Tomasulo's algorithm, which makes full out-of-order execution possible.

Pipelining Hazards, Methods of Optimization, and a. In 1990, IBM introduced the first out-of-order microprocessor, the POWER1, although out-of-order execution is limited to floating-point instructions (as is also the case on the Model 91). This paper surveys methods of microprocessor optimization, particularly pipelining, which is ubiquitous in modern chips. Pipelining is a method of executing instructions in stages, so multiple instructions can be operating in the pipeline simultaneously and allow the chip use its resources more efficiently.

CHAPTER 2 Pipelining Pipelining Basic and Intermediate. In 1990s, out-of-order execution became more common, and was featured in the IBM/Motorola Power PC 601 (1993), Fujitsu/HAL SPARC64 (1995), Intel Pentium Pro (1995), MIPS R10000 (1996), HP PA-8000 (1996), AMD K5 (1996) and DEC Alpha 21264 (1996). Pipelining is an implementation technique whereby multiple instructions are overlapped in execution; it takes advantage of parallelism that exists among the actions needed to execute an instruction. Today, pipelining is the key implementation technique used to make fast CPUs.
