Methods and apparatuses to support memory transactions using partial physical addresses

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #8131940.

Methods and apparatuses to support memory transactions using partial physical addresses are disclosed. Method embodiments generally comprise home agents monitoring multiple responses to multiple memory requests, wherein at least one of the responses has a partial address for a memory line, resolving conflicts for the memory requests, and suspending conflict resolution for the memory requests which match partial address responses until determining the full address. Apparatus embodiments generally comprise a home agent having a response monitor and a conflict resolver. The response monitor may observe a snoop response of a memory agent, wherein the snoop response only has a partial address and is for a memory line of a memory agent. The conflict resolver may suspend conflict resolution for memory transactions that match the partial address of the memory line until the conflict resolver receives a full address for the memory line.
