Designers have invested much effort in developing accurate branch predictors with short learning periods. Such techniques rely on exploiting complex and relatively large structures. Although exploiting such structures is necessary to achieve high accuracy and fast learning, once the short learning phase is over, a simple structure can efficiently predict… CONTINUE READING
