disks like the one described in the example on page 570.
If the I/O is allowed to consume 100%
of the bus and memory bandwidth, what is the maximum number of simultaneous disk transfers
that can be sustained for the two block sizes?
P11. (5 point) We want to compare the maximum bandwidth for a synchronous and an
The synchronous bus has a clock cycle time of 50 ns, and each bus
transmission takes 1 clock cycle.
The asynchronous bus requires 40 ns per handshake.

Find the bandwidth for each bus when performing one-
word reads from a 200-ns memory.
