Determining the best placement for data in the NUCA cache at any particular moment during program execution is crucial for exploiting the benefits that this architecture provides. Dynamic NUCA (D-NUCA) allows data to be mapped to multiple banks within the NUCA cache, and then uses data migration to adapt data placement to the program's behavior. Although the standard migration scheme is effective in moving data to its optimal position within the cache, half the hits still occur within non-optimal banks. This proposal reduces this number by migrating data beforehand.
