  • design issues. Specific aspects of cache memories tha t are investigated include: the cache fetch algorithm (demand versus prefetch), the placement and replacement algorithms, line size, store-through versus copy-back updating of main memory, cold-start versus warm-start miss ratios, mulhcache consistency, the effect of input /output through the cache, the behavior of split data/instruction caches, and cache size. Our discussion includes other aspects of memory system architecture, including… CONTINUE READING
