The impact of if-conversion and branch prediction on program execution on the Intel Itanium processor

Abstract

The research community has studied if-conversion for many years. However, due to the lack of existing hardware, studies were conducted by simulating code generated by experimental compilers. This paper presents the first comprehensive study of the use of predication to implement if-conversion on production hardware with a near-production compiler. To better… (More)
