MadCache: A PC-Aware Cache Insertion Policy

While the field of computer architecture is always looking for novel research directions to bring improved performance and efficiency, it is often simple improvements to more mature topics that have the most substantial impact. Cache replacement policy is one such research area, where innovations are highly sought after because of their direct improvement on performance. Furthermore, as chip-multiprocessors have become the dominant chip design, new cache replacement schemes should seek to improve the performance of workloads for both single-threaded and shared cache multithreaded systems.
