  • Allows for simple small scripts
  • Complex commands are readable
  • Most code was built for CISC


  • They are larger as the require more transistors
  • They can take multiple cycles per line of code
  • They have less registers


The CISC computer chip is an older design that is used to run lot of old code, mainly non trivial items such as government databases, were built on this system and may not be compatible with RISC systems. you could say that the new chips are RISCy. A simple description would be complex hardware and few registers. They use concise and simple code due to being able to read complex command, such as multiplying 2 doubles.
