ECE 445 - Computer Organization 7 Pipelining Analogy Sequential operation - Each load of laundry must be completed before the next one can be started. Wash = 30 minutes Dry = 30 minutes Fold = 30 minutes Store = 30 minutes - Each load of laundry requires 2 hours. - Four loads of laundry completed in 8 hours One load of laundry

8 Pipelining Analogy Parallel operation - Overlap tasks - Only one washer, one dryer, one person to fold, one person to store - Four (4) stages Wash = 30 minutes Dry = 30 minutes Fold = 30 minutes Store = 30 minutes - Each load of laundry requires 2 hours. - Four loads of laundry completed in 3.5 hours speedup = 8 hours / 3.5 hours speedup = 2.3
