Atom C3538 is a 64-bit quad-core ultra-low power x86 microserver system on a chip introduced by Intel in 2017. The C3538, which is manufactured on a 14 nm process, is based on the Goldmont microarchitecture. This chip operates at 2.1 GHz with a TDP of 15 W. The C3538 supports up to 256 GiB of dual-channel DDR4-1866 ECC memory. This model is part of Denverton's Network and Enterprise Storage SKUs and come with integrated QuickAssist Technology.
- Main article: Goldmont § Cache
[Edit/Modify Cache Info]
is a hardware component containing a relatively small and extremely fast memory designed to speed up the performance of a CPU
by preparing ahead of time the data it needs to read from a relatively slower medium such as main memory.
The organization and amount of cache can have a large impact on the performance, power consumption, die size, and consequently cost of the IC.
Cache is specified by its size, number of sets, associativity, block size, sub-block size, and fetch and write-back policies.
