An Acronym for Reduced Instruction Set Computing
Basically the idea is that the chip has relatively few machine level op codes, which makes the chip easier to design, and physically smaller. Typically the smaller instruction set allows the chip to do fewer operations, but can do each individual operation much quicker than a larger, "bloated" chip. RISC CPUs typically have much lower power consumption than larger chips.
