Assume that for a certain processor, a read request takes 50 nanoseconds on a cache miss and 5 nanoseconds on a cache hit. Suppose while running a program, it was observed that 80% of the processor’s read requests result in a cache hit. The average read access time in nanoseconds is____________.


Assume that for a certain processor, a read request takes 50 nanoseconds on a cache miss and 5 nanoseconds on a cache hit. Suppose while running a program, it was observed that 80% of the processor’s read requests result in a cache hit. The average read access time in nanoseconds is____________.
A
10
B
12
C
13
 D
14

Explanation:

The average read access time in nanoseconds = 0.8 * 5 + 0.2*50 = 14
