BOFF# has a higher priority than RDY# or BRDY#. If a bus cycle was in progress when BOFF# was asserted, the bus cycle will be restarted when BOFF# is de-asserted. 29 80486 System Architecture Cache Invalidation Signal I/O AHOLD I EADS# I Table 3-10. Cache Invalidation-Related Signals Description The Address Hold Request input allows another bus master access to the 80486 microprocessor's address bus for a cache invalidation cycle. This is necessary if a bus master other than the 80486 is altering a main memory location that may be cached in the 80486's internal cache.

The Advantage of a Level 2 Cache Some 486 systems use two levels of cache to improve overall system performance. The internal, or level one (L1), cache provides the processor with the most often used code and data, while the level two (L2) cache provides the processor with code and data that the L1 cache was too small to retain. Since all information destined for the internal L1 cache must pass through the external L2 cache, the advantage of the L2 cache may not be immediately apparent. If the L2 cache were the same size as the L1 cache (8KB), there would be no advantage.

The L2 cache must also pass the snoop address to the 486 so that it can also perform the snoop. If the 486 experiences a snoop hit it will simply invalidate the cache line. The L2 cache could force the bus master off the bus (bus master back off) prior to it completing the write to memory. The cache then seizes the bus and performs a memory write to transfer (write back) the entire cache line to memory. In the cache directory, the cache line is invalidated because the bus master will update the memory cache line immediately after the line is written back, or flushed, to memory.
