Consider a $$6$$-stage instruction pipeline, where all stages are perfectly balanced. Assume that there is no cycle-time overhead of pipelining. When an application is executing on this $$6$$-stage pipeline, the speedup achieved with respect to non-pipelined execution if $$25$$% of the instructions incur $$2$$ pipeline stall cycles is________________.

An instruction pipeline has five stages, namely, instruction fetch $$(IF),$$ instruction decode and register fetch $$(ID/RF)$$ instruction execution $$(EX),$$ memory access $$(MEM),$$ and register writeback $$(WB)$$ with stage latencies $$1$$ ns, $$2.2$$ $$ns,$$ $$2$$ $$ns,$$ $$1$$ $$ns,$$ and $$0.75$$ $$ns,$$ respectively ($$ns$$ stands for nanoseconds). To gain in terms of frequency, the designers have decided to split the $$ID/RF$$ stage into three stages $$(ID, RF1, RF2)$$ each of latency $$2.2/3$$ $$ns,$$ Also, the $$EX$$ stage is split into two stages $$(EX1, EX2)$$ each of latency $$1$$ ns. The new design has a total of eight pipeline stages. A program has $$20$$% branch instructions which execute in the $$EX$$ stage and produce the next instruction pointer at the end of the $$EX$$ stage in the old design and at the end of the $$EX2$$ stage in the new design. The IF stage stalls after fetching a branch instruction until the next instruction pointer is computed. All instructions other than the branch instruction have an average $$CPI$$ of one in both the designs. The execution times of this program on the old and the new design are $$P$$ and $$Q$$ nanoseconds, respectively. The value of $$P/Q$$ is _____________.
