5 Evaluation Results

Thus far, we have described how PAVM has been designed, implemented, and later evolved to improve energy efficiency of memory. In this section, we compare the effectiveness of the various power-management techniques implemented in PAVM with existing techniques to reduce memory's energy consumption. We first describe our experimental setup and test workloads, and then present extensive experimental results.
