faster and clock
AMD's older CPUs could simply be set to run at whatever clock speed the user chose on the motherboard, making it trivial to relabel a CPU and sell it as a faster grade than it was originally intended.
The arithmetic was actually implemented as subroutines, but with a one megahertz clock rate, the speed of floating point operations and fixed point was initially faster than many competing computers, and since it was only software, all the DEUCE's had it.
Therefore, the ISA bus was synchronous with the CPU clock, until sophisticated buffering methods were developed and implemented by chipsets to interface ISA to much faster CPUs.
For instance, the NEC V20 was a pin compatible and slightly faster ( at the same clock frequency ) variant of the 8088, designed and manufactured by NEC.
The initial clock rate of the 80186 was 6 MHz, but due to more hardware available for the microcode to use, especially for address calculation, many individual instructions ran faster than on an 8086 at the same clock frequency.

This processor was a single-chip design, ran at a faster clock speed than the R8000, and had larger 32 KB primary instruction and data caches.
Although this means fewer clock cycles per instruction compared to the Z80, for instance, the latter's higher resolution state machine allowed clock frequencies 3-5 times as high without demanding faster memory chips, which was often the limiting factor.
** A faster, fully hardware-based multiplier makes instructions such as MUL and IMUL several times as fast ( and more predictable ) than in the 80486 ; the execution time is reduced from 13 ~ 42 clock cycles down to 10 ~ 11 for 32-bit operands.
The CDC 6600 designed by Seymour Cray in 1964 used a load / store architecture with only two addressing modes ( register + register, and register + immediate constant ) and 74 opcodes, with the basic clock cycle / instruction issue rate being 10 times faster than the memory access time.
The comparison of the observer's clock against TT depends on the observer's altitude: they will match on the geoid, and clocks at higher altitude tick slightly faster.
The clock of the staying twin shows " 1 year after launch " in the screen of the ship, and during the 3 years of the trip back it increases up to " 10 years after launch ", so the clock in the screen seems to be advancing 3 times faster than usual.
So, during the trip back, both twins see their sibling's clock going 3 times faster than their own.
The original line was equipped with the Intel 8088 CPU, which was later extended to faster clock speeds and also the 8086 and 80286 processors.
It is even more popular in portable electronics devices because of faster clock speeds and increasing integration of high-resolution LCD displays into ever smaller devices.
In addition to the clock being faster, the simple processor executed instructions in fewer clock cycles ; for instance, the CPU could complete a multiplication in ten cycles.
With the CPU running much faster than on other computers, each memory access took ten CPU clock cycles to complete, so by using ten PPs, each PP was guaranteed one memory access per machine cycle.
It did make an attractive upgrade for Apple IIe users wanting to use the machine strictly in IIe-emulation mode ( ignoring the native part of the machine ), which provided faster CPU operation, 256 KB RAM, a clock and many built-in peripherals via the back ports.
The C2 was followed by the C3 in 1991, being essentially similar to the C2 but with a faster clock and support for up to eight CPUs implemented with low-density GaAs FPGAs.
Compared with standard SNES games, the additional microprocessor allows higher clock speeds ; faster access to the random-access memory ( RAM ); greater memory mapping capabilities, data storage, and compression ; new direct memory access ( DMA ) modes, such as bitmap to bit plane transfer ; and built-in CIC lockout for piracy protection and regional marketing control.

Transport in Antarctica has transformed from explorers crossing the isolated remote area of Antarctica by foot to a more open area due to human technologies enabling more convenient and faster transport, predominantly by air and water, as well as land.
Because AVL trees are more rigidly balanced, they are faster than red-black trees for lookup intensive applications.
AVL trees are more rigidly balanced than red-black trees, leading to slower insertion and removal but faster retrieval.
A key point which is often overlooked is that published lower bounds for problems are often given for a model of computation that is more restricted than the set of operations that you could use in practice and therefore there are algorithms that are faster than what would naively be thought possible.
The absence of a turret also meant that tank destroyers could be manufactured significantly cheaper, faster and more easily than the tanks on which they were based and fou8nd particular favor when production resoureces were lacking.
The electron beam could be swept across the screen much faster than any mechanical disc system, allowing for more closely spaced scan lines and much higher image resolution, while slow-fade phosphors removed image flicker effects.
Being single action weapons, they needed to be cocked for each shot, so the rate of fire was also low, and while a shooter could fan his gun, this expended all his shots even faster and made him even more inaccurate than normal.
As a general rule, more cache improves performance, but faster cache improves it further still.
An alternative view suggests that the optimum tension for power depends on the player: the faster and more accurately a player can swing their racquet, the higher the tension for maximum power.
