problems do each
Now we will consider the question of choosing a personal computer (PC). Immediately it is worth noting that the examples below are taken from the price list of the DNS store (federal network) for January-February 2011.
So, you have decided to buy a computer. As a rule, the question immediately arises, which computer or laptop is better? (how many times have I heard this) It is worth saying here that a laptop is more convenient, it takes up less space, it is mobile, but it is more expensive than a personal computer of similar capacity, and accordingly a laptop of similar price will be less powerful. So if the occupied Continue reading
A motherboard is one of the main boards (components) of a computer. It is designed to connect the remaining components of the computer into something single called the system unit. The motherboard provides branching and power supply energy of all components, it also physically connects the components, and provides control of the physical connection and work. For example, if we draw an analogy with a car, the processor will be the motor, and the motherboard will be the body … although this is not a good comparison.
There are a sufficient number of motherboard standards, but the most common are ATX, MicroATX (mATX), in short, they differ in the size of the board itself, naturally on a smaller smaller slot for additional components, but they are often not installed.
The main characteristics of the motherboard can be called: processor slot, north and south bridge models, memory type and memory speed, integrated video card (if any), various ext. Features and Continue reading
The central processing unit (CPU) is the core of the computer, so to speak its main brain, that component that performs the bulk of the computer’s work. They usually call it simply a processor, and sometimes because of its flint basis, “stone”.
Processors have been developing for a long time and quickly in stores, now most of them can not be found. In view of rapid development, naturally a lot of models and technologies have appeared, to disassemble them completely is a very big topic, so I will try to describe briefly.
The description of processors is often replete with various technologies, such as a set of instructions, for example, the MMX family, the SSE family, the 3DNow family! etc. Actually, these instruction sets are more likely to be interesting to Continue reading
