An advantage of ARM processors over traditional complex instruction set processors is that ______.

  1. a. they do not require large heat sinks and fans to remove excess heat
  2. b. they weigh less
  3. c. they are more energy efficient
  4. d. all of the above

Program Description Answer

“Advanced RISC Machines (ARM) processors do not require large heat sinks and fans to remove excess heat, are more energy efficient, and weigh less” when compared to traditional x86 complex instruction set processors.

Hence, the correct answer is option “D”.

Explanation of Solution

Advanced RISC Machines (ARM) processors:

  • Advanced RISC Machines (ARM) belong to CPU family which is based on RISC (reduced instruction set computer) architecture.
  • ARM makes 32-bit and 64-bit RISC multicore processors.
  • These are used in electronic devices like smartphone, tablets, multimedia players and other such devices.

Explanation for incorrect options:

They do not require large heat sinks and fans to remove excess heat:

ARM consumes lower power which makes them generate less heat; they weigh less, and are more energy efficient...
