CPU Performance

Factors Affecting CPU Performance

This video is designed specifically for the Edexcel IGCSE Computer Science syllabus. The CPU's clock speed and its relationship to the fetch-decode-execute cycle is explained. Then cache and multi-core CPUs are examined to explain how they affect the overall speed of a processor. The video is quite heavy on theory, but that is the nature of the topic.
