Hey @d4223738,

 

For true out-of-order execution (not talking about pipelining and instruction reordering) you need more than one execution unit and as far as I know, the microblaze does not support that (yet).

 

So my answer here would be no, not yet.

 

Best,

Herbert

@d4223738 Microblaze in performance mode has a 5-stage pipeline and branch prediction, which can be characterized as speculative execution.

You have to select implementation optimization PERFORMANCE to enable the 5-stage pipeline.
