Computer organization mcqs superscalar processors
Question 1 [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
The throughput of a super scalar processor is .....
less than 1
More than 1
Question 1 Explanation:
The throughput of a processor is measured by using the number of instructions executed per second.
Question 2 [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
When the processor executes multiple instructions at a time it is said to use .....
Question 3 [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
The ..... plays a very vital role in case of super scalar processors.
Question 3 Explanation:
The compilers are programmed to arrange the instructions to get more throughput.
Question 4 [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
If an exception is raised and the succeeding instructions are executed completely, then the processor is said to have .....
None of the mentioned
Question 4 Explanation:
The processor since as executed the following instructions even though an exception was raised, hence the exception is treated as imprecise.
Question 5 [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
In super-scalar mode, all the similar instructions are grouped and executed together.
Question 5 Explanation:
The instructions are grouped meaning that the instructions fetch and decode and other cycles are overlapped.
