These are the topics im needing to do research on:
The Arithmetic and Logic Unit; ALU, Control Unit and Registers (Program Counter; PC, Accumulator; ACC, Memory Address Register; MAR, Memory Data Register; MDR, Current
Instruction Register; CIR).
The Fetch-Decode-Execute Cycle; including its effects on registers.
The factors affecting the performance of the CPU: clock speed, number of cores, cache.
Hoping someone on here can either provide help or link me to good resources that can give me info on these topics.
