Possible hardware enhancements to CPU architecture


These are some of the initial hardware enhancement ideas to CPU and Architecture overall:

  • hardware memory blitter similar to those used in video cards, either integrated or as a co-processor

  • hardware context switching perhaps 16 banks with, ability to set a thread affinity to a hardware context bank

  • small internal FPGA fabric

  • possible uses: implement OS context switching, OS task scheduler in fabric

language aware character functions from internal ROM character sets

  • invariant-case string comparison

  • lower-case, upper-case string conversion

long character or binary stream comparison, either integrated or as a co-processor

  • lots of Rapid Application Development(RAD) applications utilize strings for conditionals

  • usage example: being able to do a 30 character string comparisons co-processor wise, possible invariant-case comparison

Community, please give your feedback.

Thank you in advance,
