One condition bit for arithmetic and logical operations is enough, more than 90% of the time you only need a zero/non-zero result. You only need special opcodes for add with carry, but then again you need those anyway.

A decrement register and branch if non-zero is useful indeed. However I don't believe the special counters like POWER are useful at all, they don't seem to provide any gain while requiring lots of unnecessary extra instructions. If you make a call inside a loop you actually have to save/restore that register via GPR moves IIRC... That's just useless.

I wouldn't call MIPS or Alpha bad or failed - both have very good branch instructions. In the old days MIPS gained a lot vs ARM from its single cycle compare&branch instructions (delayed branches also played a role of course but don't gain you anything once you have branch prediction). So I don't get why you think condition codes are so much better.

Yes, reducing condition bits can be a good tradeoff for encodings. Having multiple bits is more general of course, however most ISAs manage to turn that into a disadvantage by having many instructions only update a subset of the flags...

The switch test case is an example of the higher generality of multiple condition bits, but that's the only case where you'd ever see 2 branches after one compare. Most condition tricks are only useful when writing highly optimized assembly code. In practice for compiled code you'd hardly notice a difference between 1 or 4 condition bits.

Again, in compiled code you wouldn't notice the difference.

Condition codes are a historial artifact. Ever noticed how every ISA defines its condition bits slightly differently? It's what the very first ALU implementation happened to do. That's why some instructions only update some flags based on the value of a register...

Having every instruction set condition flags is a very bad idea, particularly if different instructions set different subsets of flags. I talked to the designers of Cortex-A8 at the time and had a hard time convincing them to add all the extra hardware to execute 2 flag setting ALU instructions per cycle and merge the flag results without any latency. The complexity of the ALUs was a reason why the A8 was late. But if they hadn't done it, Thumb-2 code would have been ~10% slower and that would have destroyed the goal of Thumb-2 being as fast as ARM but with Thumb-1 codesize.

So if you do want condition codes then you really do need to add a bit on every arithmetic instruction. That way an implementation can decide to only execute one flag setting instruction in parallel without a penalty. And you get the obvious scheduling benefits of course.

Overall for modern OoO CPUs I believe combined compare&branch is best.
