20100306512 - Compiler technique for efficient register checkpointing to support transaction roll-back: A method and apparatus for efficient register checkpointing is herein described. A transaction is detected in program code. A recovery block is inserted in the program code to perform recovery operations in response to an abort of the first transaction. A roll-back edge is potentially inserted from an abort point... Agent: Barnes & Thornburg, LLP

20100306513 - Processor core and method for managing program counter redirection in an out-of-order processor pipeline: A processor core and method for managing program counter redirection in an out-of-order processor pipeline. In one embodiment, the pipeline of the processor core includes a front-end instruction fetch portion, a back-end instruction execution portion, and pipeline control logic. Operation of the instruction fetch portion is decoupled from operation of... Agent: Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox P.l.l.c.

20100306514 - Correlating instruction sequences with cpu performance events to improve software performance: A system and method are disclosed for correlating instruction sequences. A plurality of instructions is processed to parse a first sequence of instructions comprising a first area of interest. A first instruction sequence pattern is then generated from the first sequence of instructions. Pattern matching operations are performed with the... Agent: Hamilton & Terrile, LLP - Amd

20100306516 - Information processing apparatus and branch prediction method: An information processor includes a first recording unit which stores first information indicating correspondence between an instruction address and a branch destination address of a most recent branch instruction, a computation of the most recent branch instruction having been completed and a branch for the most recent branch prediction having... Agent: Staas & Halsey LLP

20100306515 - Predictors with adaptive prediction threshold: An adaptive prediction threshold scheme for dynamically adjusting prediction thresholds of entries in a Pattern History Table (PHT) by observing global tendencies of the branch or branches that index into the PHT entries. A count value of a prediction state counter representing a prediction state of a prediction state machine... Agent: Duke W. Yee Yee & Associates, P.C.
