Abstract
Decoupled architectures have not traditionally been used
in the context of general purpose computing because of their
inability to tolerate control-intensive code that exists across
a wide range of applications. This work investigates the pos-
sibility of using multithreading to overcome the loss of de-
coupling dependencies that represent the cause of this main
limitation in decoupled architectures. A proposal for a mul-
tithreaded decoupled control/access/execute architecture is
presented as a platform for achieving high performance on
general purpose workloads. It is argued that such a decou-
pled architecture is more complexity-effective and scalable
than comparable superscalar processors, which incorporate
enormous amounts of complexity for modest performance
