How long will it take for a signal to get from one end of the computer to the other?
1: m / c 1: 3.3356 ns . . ' 1 m / c RET u c ns RET
(Recall, `c' is a "unit" corresponding to the speed of light.)
1: 3.3356 ns 1: 0.81356 ns / ns 1: 0.81356 2: 4.1 ns . . . ' 4.1 ns RET / u s
Thus a signal could take up to 81 percent of a clock cycle just to go from one place to another inside the computer, assuming the signal could actually attain the full speed of light. Pretty tight!
