Computer architects have long exploited observed memory referencing characteristics to optimize memory performance. We introduce timekeeping metrics for improving program memory performance and power dissipation. Performance and power results for previously proposed timekeeping structures are briefly summarized and implementation options are presented. Simulation focusses on implementation issues.
