Most of texts say VLIW, which is lack of hardware to detect hazards and schedule the instructions. But I haven't see any evaluation about how much VLIW can save area(h/w complexity) and power compared to matching superscalar.

Any reliable source is welcomed. Please share with me.

  • $\begingroup$ What does "matching" mean? Statically scheduled VLIW and dynamic scheduling compare very differently for different kinds of code $\endgroup$ – harold Jul 25 '18 at 18:05
  • $\begingroup$ @Harold I use the term "matching" for even performance when given enough ILP for both. $\endgroup$ – user3498780 Jul 25 '18 at 19:05
