    Abstract

    Modern RISC processors are capable of performing calculations at a very fast rate. For example, if data is available in the registers of an i860(RISC) processor, it can perform 40 million single precision additions and 40 million single precision multiplications per second. In practice, this rate is not realized as data have to be brought from RAM into the registers for processing. This takes considerable amount of time and is one of the key factors in creating the gap between peak and sustained MFLOPS ratings. Therefore experiments were designed to characterize the various types of RAM accesses on Flosolver Mk3.13;
