Computer Science and Engineering 431 Computer Architecture Fall 2008 Homework #1 Distributed : August 28, 2008 Due : September 9, 2008 via Angel by 5pm EDT Points : 15 1. Problem 1.52 in PH except assume that the task needs P CISC instructions and 1.5P RISC instructions (rather than 2P) and that one CISC instruction takes 6T ns to complete (rather than 8T ns) and one RISC instruction takes 2T ns. In addition to determining which architecture has the better performance, indicate by how much (e.g., “is 2 times (or 100%) faster”). If the CISC instructions
