Hi, where can I find information about the Translation Lookaside Buffers of Intel Xeon Gold 3rd Gen Processors. Does every model have the same TLB sizes per Core?

Hello, FloR.


Thank you for waiting.


I can confirm it is the same TLB size per core for all models, with a size per core of 2k for the Ice Lake (3rd Gen Xeon) and 1.5k for the Cascade Lake processors.


There are some additional details here:

Hi Victor,

thanks for the quick response.

I am a research assistant at the Systems Reasearch and Architectures Group at the University of Hannover, Germany [1].

Our research activities include the exploration of new operating system abstractions for virtual memory. In this context, we have extended the Linux kernel to allow multiple address spaces in an operating system process; individual threads can switch between those address-spaces [2].
Since we generate more address-space switches with our kernel extension than usual, we are interested in the influence of the TLB properties.

Regards,
Flo Rommel
