RISC
« on: June 15, 2016, 03:33:00 PM »
Is there a more succinct definition for RISC than:


A computer whose central processing unit recognizes a relatively small number of instructions, which it can execute very rapidly.

Thank you!

RISC = Reduced Instruction Set Computing

So I'd say specifying "computer" is redundant.

"CPU that performs a limited set of operations extremely quickly" would be the "succinct definition" I would go for if I was going for a crossword clue.
