AB The goal of wish branches is to use predicated execution for hard-to-predict dynamic branches, and branch prediction for easy-to-predict dynamic branches, thereby obtaining the best of both worlds. Wish loops, one class of wish branches, use predication to reduce the misprediction penalty for hard-to-predict backward (loop) branches.
