    If a 1GHz computer can start four instructions per cycle, how many instructions are executed per second? Per minute?


    If a 1GHz computer can start one instruction per cycle and can start a new instruction on 80% of its cycles, how many instructions can it complete in a second? In a minute?

    Thanks..

    hz is cycles per second i think or maybe minute
    but what you really need to find out is how many cycles it takes each instruction to complete you only talk about them starting so far

    Hz = cycles/second.
