The effectiveness of caches for vector processors

Abstract

Vector processors have typically used vector registers, interleaved memory, and pipelined access to data to provide sufficient memory system performance. Caches have been used mainly for instructions and scalar data, while vectors are usually uncached, presumably partially because of the belief that there is insufficient vector locality in these workloads… (More)
