Resum
The next stream predictor is an accurate branch predictor that provides stream level sequencing. Every stream prediction contains a full stream of instructions, that is, a sequence of instructions from the target of a taken branch to the next taken branch, potentially containing multiple basic blocks. The long size of instruction streams makes it possible for the stream predictor to provide high fetch bandwidth and to tolerate the prediction table access latency. Therefore, an excellent way for ...
