In this course, you will learn about main problems associated with typical processors. Topics such as pipelining, bubbles, caching, the reason for registers, problems associated with increasing processor speed, and branching are covered. The basic computer schemes using the X86, PowerPC, and GE4 are discussed. These schemes are still used today.
