A spin-wave delay-line active-ring oscillator has recently been proposed as a suitable substrate to implement the physical reservoir computing model. The concept displays the required properties of fading memory and nonlinearity characteristic to the model. In this paper, we improve the concept by increasing the signal delay time in the yttrium-iron garnet film by more than four times, and we examine further the improved system by evaluating experimentally the performance on two benchmark classification tasks. The short-term memory (STM) task evaluates the linear memory characteristics of the RC, while the parity-check (PC) task evaluates the nonlinear computing capability. Adequate performance on both is achieved, and the linear memory is shown to be strongly dependent on the synchronization between the reservoir computer (RC) inputs and the active-ring circulation time. The extended delay time and other major improvements result in STM and PC capacities reaching maximum values of 4.68 and 1.74, respectively.
