Resum
Indirect branch prediction is a performance limiting factor for current computer systems, preventing superscalar processors from exploiting the available ILP. Indirect branches are responsible for 55.7% of mispredictions in our benchmark set, although they only stand for 15.5% of dynamic branches. Moreover, a 10.8% average IPC speedup is achievable by perfectly predicting all indirect branches. The Multi-Stage Cascaded Predictor (MSCP) is a mechanism proposed for improving indirect branch predic...
