  author={Po-Yung Chang and Eric Hao and Yale N. Patt},
As the issue rate and pipeline depth of high performance superscalar processors increase, the amount of speculative work issued also increases. Because speculative work must be thrown away in the event of a branch misprediction, wide-issue, deeply pipelined processors must employ accurate branch predictors to effectively exploit their performance potential. Many existing branch prediction schemes are capable of accurately predicting the direction of conditional branches. However, these schemes… CONTINUE READING
