Recent high-performance processors employ
sophisticated techniques to overlap and
simultaneously execute multiple computation
and memory operations. Intuitively, these
techniques should help database applications,
which are becoming increasingly compute and
memory bound. Unfortunately, recent studies
report that faster processors do not improve
database system performance to the same extent
as scientific workloads. Recent work on database
systems focusing on minimizing memory
