22.214.171.124 Factors affecting processor 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.
