When N is decomposed into both factors of 2 and 4 the FFT is said to be a mixed radix FFT. It would first do all of the factors of 4 and then at most one factor of 2 to get any length that is a power of 2. If a two dimensional (or higher) FFT is needed, an additional improvement in performance can also be obtained by using a look up table for the sines and cosines because they only need to be calculated once. Higher radix FFT's generally trade integer operations for floating point operation. Until recently floating point operations were almost always much slower than integer operation and higher radix FFT's run faster.
