per clock

per clock

For each clock cycle. The phrase "the CPU does four instructions per clock" means that four machine instructions have been executed within one cycle of the CPU clock, the master clock that synchronizes everything in the computer. For example, in a 1 GHz computer, each clock cycle is 1 nanosecond long (one billion nanoseconds divided by one billion cycles). See clock.

The clock signal can be easily duplicated on the controller, effectively reducing the load per clock; furthermore, the control signals need to be one per rank; hence the load on the control signals would be equal to the load on the clock signals.
The Titan core is a superscalar, dual-issue, out-of-order core designed to achieve high single thread performance on a per clock basis.
When used in an embedded system as code or parameter data storage, serial flash requires fewer connections on the PCB (printed circuit board) than parallel interface flash memories since it serializes the data on fewer I/O pins and transfers data one bit per clock. This allows reduction in board space, power consumption, and overall system cost--key reasons why serial flash memories have gained popularity in embedded system design.
Moreover, because each core can handle multiple processing threads, each core can process more data per clock cycle than previous generations of CPUs.
