RESEARCH PAPER: Why processor performance is more than frequency and core count

The IT industry is undergoing significant workload shifts that challenge the status quo. Previously, the industry generally accepted that improving central processing unit (CPU) core count, clock speed, and instructions per cycle (IPC) would yield the best performance and power consumption results. In the last few years, the world’s leading processor manufacturers introduced performance and efficient processor cores that challenge this status quo.
