Definitions for "RISC"
Reduced Instruction Set Computing. Pronounced "risk." Unlike CISC, RISC reduces the number of instructions as much as possible. RISC chips are generally cheaper to develop and manufacture. Typically, a similar RISC processor can process operations up to 75% faster than a comparable CISC processor at the same clock speed. RISC computers originate from IBM research in the early 1970's. See CISC.
A computer architecture using a small set of instructions at the hardware level. RISC enables a complex processor to be built from very high-speed, simple components.
