	  abstract     = {A Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT) Processor is
capable of executing instructions from multiple threads in the same
cycle. SMT in fact was introduced as a powerful architecture to
superscalar to increase the throughput of the processor.
Simultaneous Multithreading is a technique that permits multiple
instructions from multiple independent applications or threads to
compete limited resources each cycle. While the fetch unit has been
identified as one of the major bottlenecks of SMT architecture, several
fetch schemes were proposed by prior works to enhance the fetching
efficiency and overall performance.
In this paper, we propose a novel fetch policy called queue situation
identifier (QSI) which counts some kind of long latency instructions of
each thread each cycle then properly selects which threads to fetch
next cycle. Simulation results show that in best case our fetch policy
can achieve 30% on speedup and also can reduce the data cache level 1
miss rate.},
