We propose Proximity-Aware cache Replication (PAR), an LLC replication technique that elegantly integrates an intelligent cache replication placement mechanism and a hierarchical directory-based coherence protocol into one cost-effective and scalable design. Simulation results on a 64-core CMP show that PAR can achieve 12\% speedup over the baseline shared cache design with SPLASH2 and PARSEC workloads. It also provides around 5\% speedup over a couple contemporary approaches with much simpler and scalable support.
