Abstract
Real-time complex media applications are becoming increasingly common on general-purpose sys-
tems such as desktop, laptop, and handheld computers. However, real-time execution of such
complex media applications needs a considerable amount of processing power that often surpasses
the capabilities of current superscalar processors. Further, high performance processors are of-
ten constrained by power and energy consumption, especially in the mobile systems where media
applications have become popular.
