The (DRAM) Memory Challenge in Computing Systems
It is well known that DRAM memory performance cannot keep pace with the performance of today’s multicore compute systems. In addition to the memory bandwidth problem, there are other challenges like power and reliability issues. Moreover, new memory architectures are emerging that result in heterogeneous memory hierarchies. In this talk, we will give an overview on various optimization techniques to optimize bandwidth, power and reliability in DRAM based and emerging memory systems.
