A GPU Register File using Static Data Compression

by   Alexandra Angerd, et al.

GPUs rely on large register files to unlock thread-level parallelism for high throughput. Unfortunately, large register files are power hungry, making it important to seek for new approaches to improve their utilization. This paper introduces a new register file organization for efficient register-packing of narrow integer and floating-point operands designed to leverage on advances in static analysis. We show that the hardware/software co-designed register file organization yields a performance improvement of up to 79
