Unformatted text preview: k cycles for each instruction class: Floating-point multiply 6 Floating-point add 4 Floating-point divide 20 Integer instructions 2 Computer MNFP (computer with no floating point) has no floating- point hardware and so must emulate the floating- point operations using integer instructions. The integer instructions all take 2 clock cycles. The number of integer instructions needed to implement each of the floating- point operations is as follows: Floating-point multiply 30 Floating-point add 20 Floating-point divide 50 a) Both computers have a clock rate of 1 GHz. Find the instruction per second rate for both computers. b) If the com...
