Pros and cons of MIPS relative to instruction set choices

  1. Jan 28, 2007 #1
    could someone help me with this, my ideas are sort of :yuck: not precise

    give pros and cons of MIPS relative to these instruction set choices:
    1. supporting indexed addressing mode
    2. supporting only word-sized access to memory

    1. --- dunno, sure if it all were immediate, it would be a mess but other than that, not sure
    2. well, all instructions and registers are 32-bits but i think it's all interconnected... i.e. the adressibility and register/instruction size....
    anyway.... neeeeed some insight
