Problems 3.35 (in decimal, not binary, please) and 3.40 in PH. 2. Problem 5.11 and 5.12 in PH. 3. Problem 6.3 in PH. How many cycles will it take to execute this code? 4. Problem 6.39 in PH. 5. This is the first of a set of performance evaluation experiments you will run using a simulation tool called SimpleScalar. The first step is to read The SimpleScalar Tool Set, Version 2.0 document that was handed out in class and then attend the SimpleScalar evening tutorial scheduled for 218 IST. In this first set of experiments you will be investigating the impact of different branch prediction strategies.
