RISC

Reduced Instruction Set Computer

RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer) is a microprocessor that is designed to perform a smaller number of computer instructions so that it can operate at a higher speed. Since each instruction type that a computer must perform requires additional transistors and circuitry, a larger set of computer instructions makes the microprocessor more complicated and slower in operation.
