MIPS is a RISC instruction set architecture (ISA)
X86 is an architecture derived from the Intel 8086 CPU
Assembly architecture complicated
"I have studied the x86 assembly and architecture and it appears to be a lot more complicated than mips"
from question "Operating Systems development for MIPS"
"Do any of the other common architectures like arm mips sparc etc have an easier than x86 instruction set"
from question "Which 32-bit/64-bit CPU architecture has the easiest instruction set?"
"If you have not programmed assembly before i suggest you choose mips since it is easier than x86 and then b looking at how to transfer data with the serial port to begin with since this illustrates memory-mapped i o that is used"
from question "Output to devices in Assembly"
Complex instructions care
"The wording in your question seems to suggest you don t care as much that the output is mips but rather you want the output to be less complex than x86"
from question "Convert C to MIPS64 Assembly"
|More complex instructions||
"X86 have more complex instructions than mips"
from question "What should I know when switching from MIPS to x86 assembly?"
"Mips is much more orthogonal than x86 could ever dream of being"
from question "MIPS assembly peculiarities"
"A better bet might be to install spim and to learn mips assembly which is more straightforward than x86 anyways"
from question "Assembly Programming on Mac"
