*** International Business Machines Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 3 -- International Business Machines, Armonk, N.Y., has been assigned a patent (8,347,068) developed by four co-inventors for a "multi-mode register rename mechanism that augments logical registers by switching a physical register from the register rename buffer when switching between in-order and out-of-order instruction processing in a simultaneous multi-threaded microprocessor." The co-inventors are Richard James Eickemeyer, Rochester, Minn., Hung Qui Le, Austin, Texas, Dung Quoc Nguyen, Austin, Texas, and Balaram Sinharoy, Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A multi-mode register rename mechanism which allows a simultaneous multi-threaded processor to support full out-of-order thread execution when the number of threads is low and in-order thread execution when the number of threads increases. Responsive to changing an execution mode of a processor to operate in in-order thread execution mode, the illustrative embodiments switch a physical register in the data processing system to an architected facility, thereby forming a switched physical register. When an instruction is issued to an execution unit, wherein the issued instruction comprises a thread bit, the thread bit is examined to determine if the instruction accesses an architected facility. If the issued instruction accesses an architected facility, the instruction is executed, and the results of the executed instruction are written to the switched physical register." The patent application was filed on April 4, 2007 (11/696,363).
