This is the philosophy behind RISC and superscalar processors. 4 RISC Machines Many of the high performance microprocessors are based on RISC technology. RISC, which stands for Reduced Instruction Set Computer, is a technology based on simplification of the operation of a microprocessor. Studies have shown that processors spend most of their time executing instructions from a limited subset of the instruction set. Moreover, the instructions in this subset are the simplest instructions. Making sure that these instructions are efficient will increase the overall efficiency of the processor.

Because each bit string in the sequence represents a node in the network that is a neighbor of the node represented by the preceding bit string, this sequence effectively defines a specific route for the message. As an example, consider routing a message from a node with the label 10110 to a node with the label 01101 in afive-dimensionalhypercube. Once possible sequence is 10110, 00110, OHIO, 01100, 01101. The message can be sent along the network using this sequence as a route. Of course, as long as the message is tagged with its destination label, the message can be sent one node at a time, each node figuring out the next bit to change in the label.

The first time through these loops, the value for I is 1 and the value for J is 1. The code fetches the array value B ( l , l ) , which forces a load of the cache line that array element occupies into the cache. Because the array is laid out in column-major order, the elements loaded are B ( l , l ) , B ( 2 , l ) , B ( 3 , l ) , and B ( 4 , l ) . The corresponding elements of C are also loaded into the cache when C ( l , l ) is fetched. Since the inner loop iterates over the columns, the next time through the column index J will have the value 2, indicating a fetch of the array elements B(l ,2) and C(l , 2 ) .
