Improving Uniformity of Cache Access Pattern using Split Data Caches

Abstract

In this paper we show that partitioning data cache into array and scalar caches can improve cache access pattern without having to remap data, while maintaining the constant access time of a direct-mapped cache and improving the performance of L-1 cache memories. By using 4 central moments (mean, standard-deviation, skewness and kurtosis) we report on the… (More)
