Homework Problem 6.27 [Category 1]: Given the assumptions in Problem 6.25, determine the cache performance of the following code: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 for (i = 0; i < 16; i++) { for (j = 0; j < 16; j++) { square[i][j].y = 1; } } for (i = 0; i < 16; i++) { for (j = 0; j < 16; j++) { square[i][j].c = 0; square[i][j].m = 0; square[i][j].k = 0; } } A. What is the total number of writes? _______. B. What is the total number of writes that miss in the cache? _______ . C. What is the miss rate? _______. Homework Problem 6.28 [Category 2]: You are writing a new 3D game that you hope will earn you fame and fortune. You are currently working on a function to blank the screen buffer before drawing the next frame. The screen you are working with is a ¼ ¢ ¼ array of pixels. The machine you are working on has a 64 KB direct-mapped cache with 4-byte lines. The C structures you are using are: 6.7. SUMMARY 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 343 struct pixel { char r; char g; char b; char a; }; struct pixel buffer[480][640]; int i, j; char *cptr; int *iptr; Assume: ¯ ¯ ¯ ¯ sizeof(char) == 1 and sizeof(int) == 4 buffer begins at memory address 0. The cache is initially empty. The...
