Our goal in this STSM is to construct a new correct and efficient HyTM algorithm that can work on current HTM systems for as many applications as possible. In particular, we will investigate different tradeoffs: HyNOrec vs. HyTL2/HyLSA, reduced-hardware vs. full-software, eager TM vs. lazy TM, various retry policies, and lock-based vs obstruction-free designs.
