> The 900 Mhz UltraSparc III-CU and later model processors has a
> Branch prediction logic that enables the processor to prefetch
> the right instructions after a branch and prevent Cache-miss main
> memory instruction fetches.
> This circutry gets enabled with the "xtarget=ultra3" or "xtarget=ultra3i"
> ( for the UltraSparc III-i processor ) compiler directives.
> Then the performance differance is certainly 30%. Because you avoid a
> large number of the execution pipeline stall's that you have otherwise.
