Risc Processors

a: Risc ~
b: the sand

What: "Think of it this way: if you have a box, and you fill it up with sand... obviously it is quite efficient. Now fill it up with pebbles, you waste quite some bit of space (less efficient). RISC is like the sand... very efficient instructions in the instruction set but each does very little. But if the programmer or compiler uses the instructions only as necessary, then it would do well. And because the reduced instruction set has very very simple to execute commands, it permits a much, much faster computer (in clock cycle), which helps go faster."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
