A combination of multithreading with prefetching allows increased efficiency of large-scale multiprocessors. In this paper, we evaluate two prefetching techniques in multi-threaded architectures: switch-on-prefetch and run-on-prefetch. We present two basic analytical models of multithreading with prefetching, which allow rough performance prediction on the first stages of top-down system design. The first model is the first-order approximation for efficiency of multi-threaded architectures with prefetching. The second model is a queuing network of the architecture.
