Memory-centric microarchitecture visualization

Visualization is a key part of microarchitectural analysis. Visualization is necessary because even the simplest in-order processor is incredibly complex; its performance may be affected by cache misses, branch mispredictions, pipeline stalls, DRAM contention, inaccurate prefetching, and so on. In … Continue reading
