NVCC Elements of Computer System Performance Discussion
This discussion activity provides you the opportunity to examine the elements of Computer System Performance and how they interrelate to achieve the performance objectives. Included in those elements are:
- CPU clock rate
- CPU Architecture
- Cache memory
- Random Access Memory
- System Bus
- Operating System Software (OS & Drivers)
- Application Software
Also describe how 2 or more of these elements are used in Benchmark testing to measure system performance. In your discussion, include how the overall purpose of the computer system is a determining factor.
Research and examine the elements listed in the Purpose paragraph above and discuss how each contributes to System performance. Your discussion should include a definition of the element as well as how that element specifically interacts with one or more of the other elements in achieving system performance.
