An 8-way set-associative cache is used in a computer in which the real memory size is 222 bytes. The line size is 16 bytes, and there are 26 lines per set. A) What is the size of the cache in bytes?
What I (think) I understand: Cache line and cache block are synonymous. The textbook says that an n-way set-associative cache has n blocks(lines) per set. That conflicts with the next sentence that says "there are 26 lines per set." Is this problem incorrect or are my assumptions wrong?
