Sure, introducing additional dependencies for the sake of partitioning on such uarches might speed things up if everything gets grouped correctly, but that's very different than the original claim of fewer dependencies and more reordering. You can of course use two loop counters or whatever if you want two separate (but just as long) dependency chains on such an architecture.

Certainly it doesn't help on most OoO arches.
