Class Information
Number: 712/240
Name: Electrical computers and digital processing systems: processing architectures and instruction processing (e.g., processors) > Processing control > Branching (e.g., delayed branch, loop control, branch predict, interrupt) > Conditional branching > Branch prediction > History table
Description: Subject matter including means or steps for memorizing an outcome of the last several branch instructions encountered and use that to more accurately predict an outcome of that same branch instructions if they are encountered again in the future.
