The era of billion and more transistors on a single silicon chip has already begun and this has changed the direction of future computing towards building chip multiprocessors (CMP) systems. Nevertheless the challenges of maintaining cache coherency as well providing scalability on CMPs is still in its initial stages of development. This thesis therefore investigates the scalability of cache coherent CMP systems.
