Please help me to get started with the following question.
Reduced instruction set computers provide a large number of general-purpose registers and very few memory access instructions. Most instructions use registers instead of memory. What are the advantages of such architecture? Can you think of a disadvantage as well?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 10, 2019, 1:49 am ad1c9bdddf
Here are some general advantages of RISC architecture.
- RISC architecture simplifies many aspects of processor design: allowing instructions to be fixed-length, simplifying pipelines, and isolating the logic for dealing with the delay in completing a memory access (cache miss, etc.) to only two instructions.
- Uniform instruction format, using a ...
