CISCWhat is it? The term CISC (complex instruction set computer or computing) refers to computers designed with a full set of instruction that were intended to provide needed capabilities in the most efficient way. Later, it was discovered that, by reducing the full set to only the most frequently used instructions, the computer would get more work done in a shorter amount of time for most applications. Since this was called reduced instruction set computing (reduced instruction set computer), there was now a need to have something to call full set instruction computers thus, the term CISC.
