Calculating block size - computer architecture, Computer Engineering

Calculating Block Size:

BA unit of associatively -one tag for BA words

BT unit of transfer-BT words to/from primary memory as a unit

            One valid bit for each BT   words.

No need to be similar, but BT  ≤ BA

  •   Bigger blocks give lower miss rate
  •   Big block increase miss penalty
