As modern GPUs rely partly on their on-chip memories to counter the imminent off-chip memory wall, the efficient use of their caches has become important for performance and energy. However, optimising cache locality system-atically requires insight into and prediction of cache behaviour. On sequential processors, stack distance or reuse distance theory is a well-known means to model cache behaviour. However, it is not straightforward to apply this theory to GPUs, mainly because of the parallel… CONTINUE READING
