Increased system performance in multi-core computing systems

Intellectual Property Status: Patent(s) Pending


This invention describes an architectural enhancement to computing systems to greatly improve performance. A major performance bottleneck exists in multi-core processors, which are the dominant CPU architecture in servers, desktop computers and mobile devices. Compilers are available to exploit multi-core architectures, but overall system performance is limited by the communications latency between processing elements. This invention describes a ring cache that bypasses general purpose interconnects that are currently used and doubles system performance.
