The sequential prefetching scheme is a simple hardwarecontrolled scheme, which exploits the sequentiality of memory accesses to predict which blocks will be read in the near future. We analyze the relationship between the sequentiality of application programs and the effectiveness of sequential prefetching on shared-memory multiprocessors. Also, we propose a simple hardware scheme which selects the prefetching degree on each miss by adding a small table(PDS: Prefetching Degree Selector} to the… CONTINUE READING
