Dynamic branch prediction in high-performance processors is a specific instance of a general Time Series Prediction problem that occurs in many areas of science. In contrast, most branch prediction research focuses on Two-Level Adaptive Branch Prediction techniques, a very specific solution to the branch prediction problem. An alternative approach is to(More)

Superscalar processors strive to increase the number of instructions issued in each processor cycle. Compilers therefore need to expose as much Instruction Level Parallelism (ILP) as possible by using increasingly complex code optimisations. However, the knowledge base of instruction scheduling is focused on in-order instruction issue. It has previously(More)
