English term or phrase:cast-out buffer
The POWER6 L1 data cache has been doubled to 64KB, and associativity increased to 8 ways, as was disclosed at ISSCC earlier this year. As a result, the L1D latency has increased to 4 cycles, compared to 3 cycles for the POWER5 and most other high performance MPUs. As we speculated earlier, the POWER6 includes two 4MB private L2 caches. While the caches are private, there is a cast-out buffer, which facilitates rapid communication between the two, without touching the L3 cache or main memory.
