    Compare and contrast CISC architecture and RISC architecture. Make sure to include the strengths and weaknesses of each as well as applications to which they would be most suited. You may also compare/contrast them with any architecture that may be considered as future replacements for either or both of these two.

    Compare and contrast CISC architecture and RISC architecture. Make sure to include the strengths and weaknesses of each as well as applications to which they would be most suited. You may also compare/contrast them with any architecture that may be considered as future replacements for either or both of these two.

    The CISC architecture was only referred as such when the RISC architecture evolved and brought front the complexity that the CISC architecture held.

    A CISC architecture accomplishes its tasks by building complex assembly instructions into hardware, similar to higher level languages instructions. The architecture, in part, is a derivation of the constraints that the ...
