The predictability of branches in libraries

Abstract

Accurate static branch prediction is the key to many techniques for exposing, enhancing, and exploiting Instruction Level Parallelism (ILP). The initial work on static correlated branch prediction (SCBP) demonstrated improvements in branch prediction accuracy, but did not address overall performance. In particular SCBP expands the size of executable… (More)
