reduced instruction set computers provide large number of general-purpose registers and very few memory access instructions. Most instructions use registers instead of memory. What are the advantages to such an architecture?

The advantages of RISC architecture are shorter instructions that take less time to finish and faster computing because all of the information is already in the processor and there is no need for communicating with the memory which is almost always the slowest part of the computer.
