Faster and cheaper computers have been constantly demanding technological and architectural improvements. However, current technology is suffering from three technology walls: leakage wall, reliability wall, and cost wall. Meanwhile, existing architecture performance is also saturating due to three well-known architecture walls: memory wall, power wall, and instruction-level parallelism (ILP) wall. Hence, a lot of novel technologies and architectures have been introduced and developed intensively. Our previous work has presented a comprehensive classification and broad overview of memory-centric computer architectures. In this article, we aim to discuss the most important classes of memory-centric architectures thoroughly and evaluate their advantages and disadvantages. Moreover, for each class, the article provides a comprehensive survey on memory-centric architectures available in the literature.
