This paper briefly surveys architectural technologies of recent or future high-performance, low-power processors for improving the performance and power/energy consumption simultaneously. Achieving both high performance and low power at the same time imposes a lot of challenges on processor design, and therefore gives us a lot of opportunities for devising new technologies. The paper also tries to provide some insights into the technology direction in future.
