Effectiveness of a data prefetch mechanism lies in the exploration of regular access patterns found in the memory reference address sequence. Previous research shows that selective prefetch schemes are effective for linearly accessed memory references, including instructions and data array accesses with constant strides. Extending them to pointer accesses(More)
Current work in data prediction and prefetching is mainly focused on one individual predictor per each class of data references. Despite the increasing complexity of these hybrid predictors, their prefetch coverage is still very limited. To reduce the complexity of the predictors and to expand the coverage of data prediction, we propose a novel data(More)
