[Links of the day] 18/05/2016: Cache Compression and Phase change memory

  • Statistical Compression Cache Designs : Cache memories play a critical role in bridging the latency, bandwidth, and energy gaps between cores and off-chip memory. Compressing Cache allow to save space and can offer good tradeoff in term of space / cache hit ratio.
  • Yet Another Compressed Cache : INRA version of cache compression
  • Phase-change memory : IBM demonstrate reliable storing of 3 bits of data per cell in PCM. However it still a long way from competing against 3DXpoint but can become a valid replacement in future storage solution
