Conditional Jump

Some articles on conditional jump, conditional jumps, jump:

Branch Predictor - Implementation - Local Branch Prediction
... A local branch predictor has a separate history buffer for each conditional jump instruction ... The history buffer is separate for each conditional jump instruction, while the pattern history table may be separate as well or it may be shared between all conditional jumps. 4-bit history and a local pattern history table with 16 entries for each conditional jump ...
Counter Machine - Formal Definition
... the instructions are listed in sequential order unless a jump is successful, the default sequence continues in numerical order ... set { Increment (r), Decrement (r), Clear (r) Copy (rj,rk), conditional Jump if contents of r=0, conditional Jump if rj=rk, unconditional Jump, HALT ...
Branch Predictor - Implementation - Loop Predictor
... A conditional jump that controls a loop is best predicted with a special loop predictor ... A conditional jump in the bottom of a loop that repeats N times will be taken N-1 times and then not taken once ... If the conditional jump is placed at the top of the loop, it will be not taken N-1 times and then taken once ...

Famous quotes containing the words jump and/or conditional:

    Thus twice before, and jump at this dead hour,
    With martial stalk hath he gone by our watch.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Computer mediation seems to bathe action in a more conditional light: perhaps it happened; perhaps it didn’t. Without the layered richness of direct sensory engagement, the symbolic medium seems thin, flat, and fragile.
    Shoshana Zuboff (b. 1951)
