Abstract Continuous improvements in integration scale have made possible the in-
clusion of several processor cores on the same chip. Such designs have been named
chip-multiprocessors (or CMPs) and constitute a good alternative to traditional mono-
lithic designs for several reasons, among others, better levels of performance, scala-
bility, and performance/energy ratio. On the other hand, higher clock frequencies and
increasing number of transistors available on a single chip have revealed energy con-
sumption as a critical design issue in current and future microarchitectures. In these
architectures, the design of the on-chip interconnection network has proven to have
significant impact on overall system performance and energy consumption, and that
the wires used in such interconnect can be designed with varying latency, bandwidth,
and power characteristics.
In this work, we present a detailed characterization of the energy-efficiency
