In this paper there are analyzed important technical aspects that can influence the overall performance of an application developed for CUDA enabled GPUs: the increased speedup offered by putting into use the shared and cache memory; the alignment of data in memory; optimal memory access patterns; aligning to the L1 cache line; the balance achieved between single or double precision and its effect on memory usage; joining more kernel functions into a single one; adjusting the code to the available memory bandwidth in accordance with the memory latency and the necessity to transfer data between the host and the device.
Finite State Machine (FSM): the FSMcontrols the read and write data signals for both cache and main memory they indicates which cache set is have the requested address by sending signals for (GMux) and for (LRU controller unit) if set associative was selected from the cache memory when the direct mapped
The paper presented the mathematical models of access time and improvement ratio of one and two level cache memory hierarchies.
To maintain the properties of locality in cache memory, a cache memory replacement policy is used to evict inactive blocks.
"Cache memory stores the information a microprocessor is using for the task immediately at hand," says NIST physicist Curt Richter.
Cache memory is sometimes described in levels of closeness and accessibility to the microprocessor.
A well-balanced product offering speedy transfer performance and great value for money.The OneTouch4 Mini comes from Maxtor's fourth generation of OneTouch products and our test sample is the firm's newest variant, offering what's now a fairly standard capacity of 250Gbytes.The Maxtor's 2.5-inch hard drive, though identical to the others here in terms of spindle speed and cache memory, proves itself a slick performer.
This approach makes use of high-capacity, high-speed cache memory that is shared as a network resource, serving I/O-intensive requests directly from cache.
Based on the company's TMS320C64x+ core, the C6452 DSP offers double the L1 cache memory and 40 percent more L2 cache than the C6415T, while including two gigabit Ethernet MAC ports and one gigabit switch.
