Title: Apparatus and method for neighborhood-aware virtual to physical address translations

Abstract

An apparatus and method performs neighborhood-aware virtual to physical address translations. A coalescing opportunity for a first virtual address is determined, based on completing a memory access corresponding to a page walk for a second virtual address. Metadata corresponding to the first virtual address is provided to a page table walk buffer based on the coalescing opportunity and a page walk for the first virtual address is performed based on the metadata corresponding to the first virtual address.
