Although PowerPC--the creation of Apple, Motorola and IBM efforts--has failed to take hold of the consumer market the way Pentium has, its backers maintain that PowerPC is a superior processor, built largely on its RISC (reduced instruction set computing) technology, which essentially requires fewer programming steps compared with the CISC (complex instruction set computing) technology of Pentium.
A database application can be scaled from a single-processor, Intel-architecture server to a Unix-based RISC (reduced instruction set computing) machine or even a multiprocessor supercomputer.
Reduced instruction set computing, or RISC, combined with improved device technology, allows us to provide 50 to 75 percent more performance for a dollar's worth of computer every year.
