RISC or CISC

i just have a quick question is AMD CPU's RISC or CISC?

    CISC, I'm pretty sure. The x86 instruction set compatible ones anyway...

    for(74,117,115,116){$::a.=chr};(($_.='qwertyui')&&
    (tr/yuiqwert/her anot/))for($::b);for($::c){$_.=$^X;
    /(p.{2}l)/;$_=$1}$::b=~/(..)$/;print("$::a$::b $::c hack$1.");

  • then its true that intel have hybrid system which incorporated CISC and RISC but how come AMD CPUs are fast compare with intel if AMD runs CISC architecture.it cant be the instructions set which differentate them it gotta be the microprocessor?

    I believe it's called a "good design".

    It's definitely CISC. If you're talking about an IBM/x86 compatible machine, you're referring to a CISC machine. The only widely used RISC machines out there that I know of are UNIX based.

    The Alpha *MAY* have been CISC, but the only major Windows platform that was ported for it was Windows NT.
