The Hybrid Memory Cube is an early commercial product embodying attributes of future stacked DRAM architectures, namely large capacity, high bandwidth, on-package memory controller, and high speed serial interface. We study the performance and energy of a Gen2 HMC on data-centric workloads through a combination of emulation and execution on an HMC FPGA board. An in-house FPGA emulator has been used to obtain memory traces for a small collection of data-centric benchmarks. Our FPGA emulator is… CONTINUE READING
