If you programmed the preload engine to load data into the L2 cache RAM, the preload engine transfers data to the L2 cache RAM if the memory region type is cacheable. Table 8.2 shows the memory region types that the L2 memory system considers cacheable or noncacheable.
|Memory region type||Cacheable|
|Write-back, no write-allocate, nonshared||Yes|
|Write-back, no write-allocate, shared||No|
|Write-back, write-allocate, nonshared||yes|
|Write-back, write-allocate, shared||No|
When the preload engine encounters a noncached memory region, including at the start of the transfer, the preload engine stops the transfer and marks the transfer as complete.
