    Not sure why the IA link is used; direct link works fine…

    This covers a lot of prior art I noticed a lot of papers on tagged memory ignore - table 1 is in particular a mostly good summary. The glaring omission is, as you would expect me to point out - IBM i and its predecessors.

      Indeed, it’s a very strange omission.

      Those who found this paper interesting might like my writeup on how IBM i tagging works: https://www.devever.net/~hl/ppcas

        Nice write up. Thx

        Btw - are there any recent PowerPC boards in the $100 - $200 range for hobbyists?

        The only thing I could imagine is maybe using an old Power Mac G5. But those have issues with their liquid cooling systems.

          No, and definitely not with the tags extension. The only CPUs that ever supported that are the IBM POWER series.

        Because it was the PDF Google Scholar surfaced. Glad that the publisher put out a free version!
