Improving Branch Prediction and Predicated Execution in Out-of-Order Processors
If-conversion is a compiler technique that reduces the misprediction penalties caused by hard-to-predict branches, transforming control dependencies into data dependencies. Althou...

Wish Branches: Enabling Adaptive and Aggressive Predicated Execution
Wish branches, a new class of control-flow instructions, allow the hardware to dynamically decide whether or not to use predicated execution for a dynamic branch instruction. The ...

Wish Branches: Combining Conditional Branching and Predication for Adaptive Predicated Execution
Predicated execution has been used to reduce the number of branch mispredictions by eliminating hard-to-predict branches. However, the additional instruction overhead and addition...
