Hongik Univ. J. Hyun Kim, UNIST CSE Postdoc Dr. Young Je Moon, Professor Sam H. Noh’s paper “An Experimental Study on the Effect of Asymmetric Memory Latency of New Memory on Application Performance” was accepted for publication at MASCOTS 2016.
As DRAM reaches its density limitation, New memory technology such as STT-RAM and PCM are emerging as contenders for next generation memory. New memory has higher density than DRAM, but its latency, especially write latency, is longer. The goal of this paper is to evaluate how the read/write latency gap affects the performance of applications. We found that write latency has virtually no effect and the effect of read latency is limited only to applications with very low CPU cache hit rates.
