Ever tightening power caps constrain the sustained processing speed of modern processors. With computational sprinting, processors reserve a small power budget that can be used to increase processing speed for short bursts. Computational sprinting speeds up query executions that would otherwise yield slow response time. Common mechanisms used for sprinting include DVFS, core scaling, CPU throttling and application-specific accelerators.
