Support for Speculative Execution in High-performance Processors

  title={Support for Speculative Execution in High-performance Processors},
  author={Michael D. Smith},
Superscalar and superpipelining techniques increase the overlap between the instructions in a pipelined processor, and thus these techniques have the potential to improve processor performance by decreasing the average number of cycles between the execution of adjacent instructions. Yet, to obtain this potential performance benefit, an instruction scheduler for this high-performance processor must find the independent instructions within the instruction stream of an application to execute in… CONTINUE READING
