Easing the programmer's burden does not
compromise system performance or increase
the complexity of hardware implementation.

CALIN CASCAVAL, PABLO MONTESINOS, WONSUN AHN,
AND MILOS PRVULOVIC
In the past, architectures were de-
signed primarily for performance or
for energy efficiency. Looking ahead,
one of the top priorities must be for
the architecture to enable a program-
mable environment. In practice, pro-
grammability is a notoriously difficult
metric to define and measure. At the
hardware-architecture level, program-
mability implies two things: First, the
architecture is able to attain high ef-
