Name:____________________________ CMIS 310 – Spring 2011 ONLINE ASSIGNMENT #4 - Module 4 This assignment consists of eight questions worth a total of 106 points. The assignment is worth 10% of your course grade. Answers will be posted in the Assignment #4 Study Group upon receipt of your assignment so that you may use it to study for the final exam. 1. (21 points) Consider a CPU that implements four parallel fetch-execute pipelines for superscalar processing. Show the performance improvement over scalar pipeline processing and no-pipeline processing, assuming an instruction cycle similar to figure 4.1 in the commentary, i.e.: a one clock cycle fetch a one clock cycle decode a two clock cycle execute and a 60 instruction sequence: no pipelining would require _____ clock cycles: a scalar pipeline would require _____ clock cycles: a superscalar pipeline with four parallel units would require ______ clock cycles: 1

2. (30 points) Show the layout of the specified cache for a CPU that can address 512M x 64 of memory. Give the layout of the bits per location and the total number of locations. (Hint: Similar to Self-Assessment Question 6 and Discussion Topic 9) a) The cache holds 1M x 64 of data and has the fully associative strategy b) The cache holds 1M x 64 of data and has the direct mapped strategy c) The cache holds 1M x 64 of data and has the two-way set-associative strategy 2
