Remote Memory Access can move two-sided communication to one-sided communication, thus allowing synchronization overhead reduction [20].
On further analysis of subset scores, it was found that recent and remote memory (as measured by the Personal and Current Information subset), verbal recall and immediate memory (Logical Memory subset), visual memory (Visual Reproduction subset), verbal memory and learning (Associate Learning subset) and attention and executive function (Mental Control subset) declined with age.
Remote memory takes longer to access because the memory request is routed in hardware from the requesting processor to whichever remote processor has that particular datum in local memory.
A RDC is used to hold those lines that are fetched to the node from remote memory and acts as backup for the processor caches.

Latency refers to the performance hit caused by processors waiting for data to be transferred from memory - both memory local to the processor (cache), and remote memory accessed over the backplane.
We employ acyclic task dependence graphs to model irregular parallelism with mixed granularity, and we use direct remote memory access to support fast communication.
