Title: Method and apparatus for performing memory prefetching

Abstract

A method and apparatus for performing memory prefetching includes determining whether to initiate prefetching. Upon a determination to initiate prefetching, a first memory row is determined as a suitable prefetch candidate, and it is determined whether a particular set of one or more cachelines of the first memory row is to be prefetched.
