CPU - Pipeline (Cycle)

Cpu Moore Law Transistor



A computer (ie CPU) essentially implements this process:

  1. reads the instruction pointer,
  2. fetches the next instruction from a storage device
  3. decode the instruction
  4. execute it,
  5. increments the instruction pointer
  6. and then goes back to step one.

Instruction - Cycle

An instruction cycle (sometimes called fetch-decode-execute cycle) is the basic operation cycle of a computer. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks (or clock cycles) to execute each instruction....
