This is a nice semi-technical article, a historical treatment of branch prediction, and the performance vs cost tradeoffs, for a variety of schemes varying from nothing at all to hybrid approaches seen from 1998 to 2010. More recent branch prediction technology being even more arcane and not necessarily public.

With diagrams too!

Earliest referenced machine 1977, latest 2010.
