Godson-2E (龙芯2E) is a 64-bit MIPS performance processor developed by ICT and later Loongson for desktop computers. Introduced in early 2006, the Godson-2E operates at up to 1 GHz consuming 7W. This chip was manufactured on STMicroelectronics' 90 nm process and provides roughly three times the performance of 2C. This processor is known as China's first processor to reach gigahertz frequency.

The Godson-2E introduces a number of improvements over its predecessor, including double the clock frequency, the addition of a large L2 cache, and the integration of the northbridge on-die, supporting up to DDR-333.

Cache Organization
Cache 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.

Note: All units are in kibibytes and mebibytes.
