I'm still a little confused on capacity miss vs. conflict miss. If we increase cache size, wouldn't all conflict misses disappear?


@ak47: The only way to eliminate a capacity miss is to enlarge cache size. A conflict miss can be avoided without changing cache size, but by changing the constraints on where lines can be placed in the cache. (e.g., increase the cache's associativity).
