posted in: Research News | 0

Congratulations to Svilen Kanev and Sam Xi for their accepted paper at ASPLOS 2017! This paper proposes Mallacc, a technique for accelerating dynamic memory allocation (malloc) in hardware. Mallacc is able to achieve up to 50% speedup on malloc calls in which the baseline software performance was already on the order of 20 cycles. Stay tuned for the conference in Xi’an, China in April!
