Consider the unpipelined machine with 10 ns clock cycles. It uses four cycles for ALU operations and branches, whereas five cycles for memory operations. Assume that the relative frequencies of there operations are 40%, 20%, 40% respectively. Suppose that due to clock skew and setup, pipelining the machine adds 1 ns overhead to the clock. How much speed up in the instruction executed rate will we gain from a pipeline?
