Speculative multithreading (SpMT), also known as thread level speculation (TLS), is a dynamic parallelization technique that depends on out-of-order execution to achieve speedup on multiprocessor CPUs. It is a kind of speculative execution that occurs at the thread level as opposed to the instruction level.
