Performance

Response Time: Time taken to do a particular task

Throughput: Total workdone per unit time

\[\]

Clock Period: Duration of a clock cycle. e.g., 250 ps (picosecond)

Clock frequency: Number of clock cycles per second. e.g., 40 GHz or \(\)

\[\]

However,

Weighted Average CPI:

\[\]

MIPS(Million Instructions Per Second):

\[\]

Substituting CPU Time in the above equation,

\[\]
