Performance and Issues in Pipelining
Throughput: Throughput of a pipeline can be defined as the number of results that have been getting per unit time. It can be denoted as:
T = n / [m + (n-1)]. c = E / c
Throughput signifies the computing power of the pipeline.
Maximum speed up, throughput and efficiency are the perfect cases but these are not achieved in the useful cases, as the speedup is limited due to the many factors:
