Unformatted text preview: Score: Name: 1. (5 points) AMD’s Athlon chips are labeled with the equivalent Intel chip clock frequency to indicate the relative performance for marketing purposes. AMD was worried that a lower frequency clock on the AMD chip would hurt sales. The AMD Athlon 3000 (program execution time performance equivalent to a 3Ghz Intel chip) actually has a 2167Mhz clock. / Extav't\‘°nT:M¢-A I)“: Exec/+1,“ Il‘mein‘ffil #Ins‘l'ruol'v'onf he, Same Carma Cloak Rate“; “Intel x Cm" K“ 4-H ,.. 2. l6 ._ l2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
