We propose the Fuce (FUsion of Comunication and Execution) architecture. The Fuce processor of the architecture executes all processing composed of fine-grain "uninterruptible" threads. The multiple thread execution model of the architecture takes the continuation-based multithreading model. The execution model takes dependency among threads as the continuation instruction. The parallel I/O processing with the execution model divides I/O processing into fine-grain threads, and associates in Chip Multiprocessor as processor cores and fine-grain threads. In this paper, the parallel I/O processing in the continuation-based multithreading compares the parallel I/O processing with interrupt. This paper shows the parallel I/O processing performance is almost equal, and the response time in the continuation-based multithreading can be shortened.
