The gap between CPU speed and memory speed in modern computer systems is widening as new generations of hardware are introduced. Loop blocking and prefetching transformations help bridge this gap for regular applications; however, these techniques aren’t as effective for irregular applications. This paper investigates using data and computation reordering to improve memory hierarchy utilization for irregular applications on systems with multi-level memory hierarchies. We evaluate the impact of… CONTINUE READING
