  • Performance of a computer
    • Size of cache: The bigger the cache size then the faster instructions can be supplied to the CPU
    • Speed of clock: The faster the clock speed then the faster a computer can carry out the fetch-decode-execute cycle and so processes more instructions
    • Number of cores: The more cores then the more instructions being processed in the same time
    • Types of processors: Their are two main types of processors.
      • Reduced instruction set computer (RISC) which can process simple instructions very quickly
      • Complex instruction set computer which can process complex instructions without breaking them down into simpler ones
