This paper introduces a new architectural approach that supports compiler-synthesized dynamic branch predication. In compiler-synthesized dynamic branch prediction, the compiler generates code sequences that, when executed, digest relevant state information and execution statistics into a condition bit, or predicate. The hardware then utilizes this information to make predictions. Two categories of such architectures are p r oposed and evaluated. In Predicate Only Prediction POP, the hardwaredoi:10.1109/hpca.1997.569617 dblp:conf/hpca/AugustCGH97 fatcat:x5xfvu4lfjbcpoferykymojgba
