Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Cache effectiveness should be improved to deal with long memory latencies, to utilize run-time adaptive cache management techniques, to optimize both performance and cost of implementation, and to increase data cache effectiveness for integer programs. A microarchitecture scheme where the hardware determines the data placement is presented based on dynamic referencing behavior. This scheme is fully compatible with instruction set architectures. Run-time adaptive cache management can significantly improve the overall performance of integer applications. The improvements are due to increased cache miss handling latencies.
