Definitions for "Reduced Instruction Set Computing"
Keywords:  risc, cisc, debug, cheap, processor
(RISC) Internal computing architecture where processor instructions are pared down so that most can be performed in a single processor cycle, theoretically improving computing efficiency. Riser: Application for indoor cables that passes between floors. It is normally a vertical shaft or space.
RISC. A processor that recognizes only a limited number of assembly language instructions. RISC chips are relatively cheap to produce and debug, as they usually contain fewer than 128 different instructions. CISC processors use a richer set of instructions, typically somewhere between 200 to 300. RISC processors are commonly used in workstations, and can be designed to run up to 70 percent faster than CISC processors.
(computer science) a kind of computer architecture that has a relatively small set of computer instructions that it can perform
