Accurate branch prediction and instruction fetch prediction of a microprocessor are critical to achieve high performance. For a processor which fetches and executes multiple instructions per cycle, an accurate and high bandwidth instruction fetching mechanism becomes increasingly important to performance. Unfortunately, the relatively small basic block size exhibited in many general-purpose applications severely limits instruction fetching. In order to achieve a high fetching rate fordoi:10.1109/hpca.1997.569645 dblp:conf/hpca/WallaceB97 fatcat:t2znawnzrzfgtakd36luw5cnq4
