Memory consistency modelsSpeaker: Per Stenstrom – Gothenburg, Sweden
Topic(s): Hardware, Power and Energy , Architecture, Embedded Systems and Electronics, Robotics
The compute landscape is moving towards being data centric rather than compute centric as in the past. This puts lots of pressure on the memory system in modern computers and optimizations may break important correctness contracts to the software.
This lecture provides an overview of memory consistency models starting with why they are fundamental to the interface between software and hardware of parallel architectures. The lecture will survey memory consistency models in modern systems and conditions that must be met at the software and hardware level for correct operation.
