A video card is also a graphics accelerator, a computer component responsible for outputting images and generating graphics, for example, in games. The video card is necessary for the computer to work, otherwise it just won’t start, and the picture doesn’t appear. At the moment, there are various types of accelerators, for home systems (desktop), mobile (laptops, communicators and even telephones), for semi-professional and professional use. There are also differences in “acceleration goals”, there are two-dimensional graphics accelerators (2D) and three-dimensional graphics accelerators (3D). 2D accelerators do not always work with 3D graphics, but they are more likely to be semi-professional and professional accelerators; they serve mainly for working, for example, with photography (for example, in magazines that print). But do not think that 3D accelerators do not work with 2D graphics, they work! just focus on 3D. Video cards for home computers are all 3D accelerators.
The main parameters of video cards can be called: graphics processor, type and amount of memory, Continue reading
Random access memory – it is the RAM (RAM), it is also an opertivka. Serves for temporary storage of data with which the central processor works. Surely some are asking the question “why?”, Because there is a hard drive, there is memory in the processor. The answer is simple, the need to store more and more operational data is constantly growing and the processor memory (cache) is very small for that, with regards to the hard disk, some data is stored on it, but only a part, the speed of RAM is much faster than the speed of working with hard disk, because RAM is used.
The main characteristics of RAM are: memory type, memory speed, timings, form factor, volume.
Type of memory – with the development of technology and computer technology, more and more types of memory appear, more precisely, newer ones remove old ones from the market. At the moment, DDR3 is common, although so 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
