Abstract
Future chip multiprocessors (CMPs) will be capable of de-
configuring faulty units in order to permit continued opera-
tion in the presence of wear-out failures. However, the un-
foreseen downside is pipeline imbalance due to other por-
tions of the pipeline now being overprovisioned with respect to
the deconfigured functionality. We propose PowerTransfer, a
novel CMP architecture that dynamically redistributes the chip
power under pipeline imbalances that arise from deconfiguring
faulty units. Through rebalancing achieved by temporary,
symbiotic deconfiguration of additional functionality within
