Resum
Set-associative cache architectures are commonly used. These caches consist of a number of ways, each of the same size. We have observed that the different ways have very different utilization, which motivates the design of caches with heterogeneous way sizes. This can potentially result in higher performance for the same area, better capabilities to implement dynamically adaptive schemes, and more flexibility for choosing the size of the cache.
