Abstract
Cache memories were incorporated in microprocessors in the early times and represent the most common
solution to deal with the gap between processor and memory speeds. However, many studies point out that the cache storage capacity is wasted many times, which means a direct impact in processor performance. Although a cache is designed to exploit different types of locality, all memory references are handled in the same way, ignoring particular locality behaviors. The restricted use of the l...
