Full time

We are now looking for a Senior CPU Architect!

We are seeking senior CPU Architects to create next generation CPU cores in support of a diverse array of NVIDIA products. If you love improving CPU performance through innovative CPU microarchitectural ideas; modeling them to determine merit;  and then seeing them through implementation and bring up; then you should talk to us.

What you'll be doing:

  • Develop cycle-accurate architectural performance and power models for the CPU core of a complex high performance system-on-a-chip.

  • Use models to analyze architectural tradeoffs related to CPU Performance and Power, identifying performance bottlenecks on deep learning (DL) workloads, high-performance computing (HPC) workloads, as well as industry standard benchmarks like SPECInt and SPECFp.

  • Propose micro-architectural alternatives that fit within area, timing and power constraints for the design.

  • Work with the performance verification team to validate the model, and to root cause disconnects between model projections and design (RTL).

What we need to see:

  • Master's degree with a focus on CPU microarchitecture, or equivalent experience.

  • 6+ years of relevant experience.

  • A deep understanding  of  the state of the art of CPU microarchitecture and architecture.

  • A track record of CPU microarchitectural innovation with experience in one or more of the following broad areas.

    • Front End CPU Uarch (Fetch, Decode, Branch Prediction).

    • Midcore CPU uarch  (Rename, Allocate, Scheduler, Integer/Vector Exec).

    • Memory Subsystem CPU Uarch  (MMU/TLB, Address Gen, Load/Store Units, L1, L2 caches, Prefetch).

  • A history of generating innovative microarchitectural ideas to improve performance ; actively doing the  performance modeling and debug to demonstrate the merit and limitations of these ideas; enabling the  realization of the ideas with close engagement with design.verification/postSi bringup teams.

  • Close collaboration  with the lead microarchitect of the  core to  cooperatively solve issues and help realize the overall perf/area/power targets of the CPU core.

  • A strong ability to communicate  and advocate the merits and drawbacks   of the microarchitectural ideas to  fellow microarchitects, and implementation leads in a variety of mediums, both verbally and through presentations and documents.

  • An enthusiasm, energy and drive  in leading their part of the microarchitecture of the machine  where they lead by doing.

Ways to stand out of the crowd:

  •  PhD in  a relevant CPU microarchitecture area.

  • At least 4 years of industry experience in a core CPU microarchitecture.

With competitive salaries and a generous benefits package, NVIDIA is widely considered to be one of the technology world’s most desirable employers. We have some of the most forward-thinking and hardworking people in the world working for us.

Please mention that you found the job on ARVR OK. Thanks.
