Reducing The Cost of Cache Coherence By Integrating HW Coherence Protocol Directly With The Programming Language

A new technical paper titled "WARDen: Specializing Cache Coherence for High-Level Parallel Languages" was published by researchers at Northwestern University and Carnegie Mellon University. Abstract: "High-level parallel languages (HLPLs) make it easier to write correct parallel programs. Disciplined memory usage in these languages enables new optimizations for hardware bottlenecks, such ... » read more
