The recent progress of RISC technology has led to the feeling that a significant percentage of image processing applications, which in the past required the use of special purpose computer architectures or of ad hoc hardware, can now be implemented in software on low cost general purpose platforms. We decided to undertake the study described in this paper to understand the extent to which this feeling corresponds to reality. We selected a set of reference RISC-based systems to represent RISC technology, and identified a set of basic image processing tasks to represent the image processing domain. We measured the performance and studied the behavior of the reference systems in the execution of the basic image processing tasks by running a number of experiments based on different program organizations. The results of these experiments are summarized in a table, which can be used by image processing application designers to evaluate whether RISC-based platforms are able to deliver the computing power required for a specific application
