2. Consider a $2 \mathrm{GHz}$ processor where two important programs, A and B, take one second each to execute. Each program has a CPI of 1.5 . In the next-generation design, the company architects came up with the idea that improves the CPI of A to 1.1 and the CPI of B to 1.4. But the idea is so complex that the processor can only be implemented with a cycle time of $0.6 \mathrm{~ns}$. Does the new processor out-perform the original processor on program A? How about on program B? [20\%]
