We will also be considering how they are used in different electronic devices. And then finally, we will be talking about what “Pipelining” is and how it has effected electronic devices to this day.

I. INTRODUCTION (HEADING 1)
There are two main types of architectures in the present day which are the x86 and ARM architecture. These architectures are commonly used in modern technology within their processors to execute instructions to meet their functionality.
II. X86 & ARM ARCHITECTURE
The ARM processor is from a family of Central Processing Units that is based on the Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC) architecture which was developed by Advanced RISC Machines. However, the ARM architecture was originally developed by Acorn Computers, who currently own the company ARM Holdings, during the 1980’s.
ARM manufactures both 32-bit as well as 64-bit RISC multi-core processors. The RISC processor was designed to perform less types of computer instructions, for the processor to work at a much…
