Hardware/Software (HW/SW) co-designed processors have emerged as a promising solution to the power and complexity problems of modern microprocessors. These processors utilize dynamic optimizations to improve the performance. However, vectorization, one of the most potent optimizations, has not yet received the deserved attention. This paper presents a speculative dynamic vectorization algorithm to explore its potential.
