it uses history to predict
Yeah, the 'jump table' would most likely have that address with a weighted score.

honey the codewitch wrote:
but most recently you also said it would rely on branch order - i am a little unclear on that
I think looking at executables as a visual graph[^] make it easier to understand. The cpu does not have any control over branch ordering. Your compiler/linker controls this. This entire conversation was about how likely and unlikely keywords affect that ordering. And how that influences branch prediction.

Anyway, I am falling behind in my work, gotta go
