Sorry could not understand your query, how variable type should be related to a l2 cache.
I mean what kind of information is shared?
I dont think it should have some relation with the variable type, When we dont had the concept of unlayered cache it was always a tradeoff between latency and miss (big size cache reduces the miss but increases the latency which small size increases the miss)

Lets wait for what others are saying :)

I was searching the differences in normal C-lang multithread program and a multicore programming. Can any one clarify the difference and how the "parallelism" OR "execution-speed" is achieved form multicore programming.

Using the thread attribute we can set the affinity(in which core he has to run) to the thread, not not getting the exact usage of multicore programming.

One more question how to access the common(global data) memory in multicore programming, will synchronization adds delay in execution? If yes then what is the use of multicore programming
