HPS (High Performance Substrate) is a parallel microarchitecture design style where data flow techniques are used to coordinate out-of-order execution. This paper discusses the design choices we have regarding several important issues in the HPSm design. These issues are horizontal concurrency, active window size, checkpoints for handling conditional branches and exceptions, forwarding delay, operand scheduling, memory data dependency handling, and value buffering.
