Pegasus is NetSpeed’s last level cache IP that is designed to boost system performance in conjunction with Gemini.
Pegasus when used along with Gemini can be used to dramatically reduce critical latencies in the SoC as well as improve system throughput.
Pegasus along with Gemini allows architects significant control of their design by supporting a multitude of flexible cache hierarchies.
Pegasus can be configured to operate as a coherent cache to reduce latency for coherent cache accesses. By removing unnecessary lookups, the performance of the Last level caches are improved and dynamic power consumption is reduced.
Pegasus can be configured as a memory cache to give traffic with good locality bandwidth increase. Memory cache does not require the flushing of the cache and will speed up software-coherency use cases and improve memory bandwidth during transitions.
Cache hierarchy connectivity can be created to have redundant paths so that the LLC can be entirely disabled and traffic can be routed directly to memory instead. This allows the entire LLC to be powered off and traffic to take a more direct route in the network.
Based on system requirements such as cache capacity and total coherent bandwidth, architects can add multiple instance of Pegasus, and customizes them before placing them in the interconnect. The benefits that Pegasus brings are:
Integrated performance simulator that empowers architects to understand the tradeoffs among power, performance, and area with real-time feedback.
Integrated architectural exploration platform simulates various application use-cases and industry benchmarks.
Optimize either memory sub-systems and complete SoC systems using end-to-end bandwidth, latency and power tradeoff metrics.
Powerful data analytics tools that provide insights on the performance and power bottlenecks in the system.
