Abstract
Clustered microarchitectures are an effective organization to deal with the problem of wire delays and complexity by partitioning some of the processor resources. The organization of the data cache is a key factor in these processors due to its effect on cache miss rate and inter-cluster communications. This paper investigates alternative designs of the data cache: centralized, distributed, replicated and physically distributed cache architectures are analyzed. Results show similar average perfo...
