Windows (and/or hardware?) does not throttle/distribute/share memory access time/bandwidth.

  1. Hello,

    I think there is a bit of a little problem with windows and therefore a
    potential weakness/attack vector.

    The problem could be/seems to be windows does not throttle
    memory/distribute/share access time/bandwidth.

    Explanation:

    Windows is known for it's multi-threading capabilities which tries to share
    processor time fairly/evenly/distributed among processes/threads and the
    buck pretty much stops there.

    Conclusion is therefore: If a single process/thread is capable of maximizing
    memory access time/bandwidth with it's few time slices then there is a
    problem, all other threads/processes will get memory access time/bandwidth
    starved, this will pretty much bring windows down to it's knees.

    A future more advanced windows would be capable of throttling memory access
    time/bandwidth too.

    Perhaps special instructions could be added to processors to somehow try to
    lessen the pain of additional code/processing overhead that this might
    bring.

    Or perhaps chipsets working together with the memory system need to be
    altered to allow such sharing/distributing of memory access/bandwidth among
    different processes/threads, perhaps even cores.

    Bye,
    Skybuck.
