Serialized cache access has been a strategy proposed in others' works to reduce the latency penalty introduced in a two-way set-associative cache. In this paper we present a novel mechanism, which provides a better or the same miss rate as a two-way set-associative cache, and with similar access time as a direct mapped cache. We use an address prediction strategy to select the correct cache set entry in a virtually partitioned direct mapped cache.
