Recent superscalar processors issue four instructions per cycle. These processors are also powered by highly-parallel superscalar cores. The potential performance can only be exploited when fed by high instruction bandwidth. This task is the responsibility of the instruction fetch unit. Accurate branch prediction and low I-cache miss ratios are essential(More)
