<p>The techniques that can be used to design a memory system that reduces the impact of contention are examined. To exemplify the techniques, the implementations and the design decisions taken in each are reviewed. The discussion covers memory organization, interconnection networks, memory allocation, cache memory, and synchronization and contention. The multiprocessor implementations considered are C.mmp, CM*, RP3, Alliant FX, Cedar, Butterfly, SPUR, Dragon, Multimax, and Balance.</p>
