Asynchronous Memory Access Unit for General Purpose Processors

See More ...

In future data centers, applications will make heavy use of far memory (including disaggregated memory pools and NVM). The access latency of far memory is more widely distributed than that of local memory accesses. This makes the efficiency of traditional blocking load/store in most general-purpose processors decrease in this scenario. Therefore, this work proposes an in-core asynchronous memory access unit.
