Computer Acronyms





Reduced Instruction Set Computer:


Computer architecture that reduces the complexity of the chip by using simpler instructions. Reduced instruction set does not necessarily mean fewer instructions, but rather a return to simple instructions requiring only one or a very few instruction cycles to execute, and therefore are more effectively utilized with innovative architectural and compiler changes. Systems using RISC technology are able to achieve processing speeds of more than five million instructions per second.
