Dual data cache (DDC) systems have attracted considerable research effort in the past decade or so, with their Divide et Impera tactic. DDC systems divide data according to their access patterns and use different caching strategies on them. In the first part of this paper, one possible classification taxonomy, is proposed and described. The second part of… (More)
The modified Split Temporal/Spatial (STS) cache, described in this paper, introduces a different internal organizations of the Split Temporal/Spatial Cache, for better utilization of data characteristics. Conducted simulations show substantial improvements over traditional cache systems, with little increase in surface area and power consumption.
