Intel's Dual-Core Core i3 Processor
Core i3 is an entry-level 2-core processor using the 32nm Westmere micro-architecture. With a Thermal
Design Power (TDP) of 73 watts, the i3-530 is a cool-running chip that doesn't gobble loads of electricity,
so those looking for a power-efficient, quiet machine will be happy with it. More ...
Understanding The Speed Of New Pci Express Data Bus
PCIe is intended to be used as a local interconnect only. As it is based on the existing
PCI system, cards, and systems can be adapted to PCI Express without any change in
software. The higher speeds on PCIe allow it to replace almost all existing buses. More ...
Basic Computer Architecture
Computers today, even that PC on your desk are unbelievably complex. You can't understand
computers without an understanding of the basics. In this article I explain basic computer
architecture in simple, basic terms. More ...
The Universal Serial Bus
In 1996 the Universal Serial Bus (USB) was developed to replace the serial and parallel
ports. Today, the USB port is used to connect scanners, digital cameras, and external
storage devices like CD-RW drives. More ...
A motherboard, also known as a main board, is the primary circuit board inside of a
computer, and is where the central processing unit (CPU), memory, expansion slots,
drives, and other peripheral devices are connected. More ...
Anatomy of a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)
Color LCD displays have a sandwich-like structure. One layer of the sandwich has
liquid crystal between two glass plates. One glass plate has a matrix of thin film
transistors on it. Liquid crystals move depending upon the charge applied to a tiny
capacitor by its related transistor. More ...
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Chipsets
Although most people think the microprocessor is the most important part on a computer's
motherboard, the "chipset" is equally important. With the introduction of the Athlon processor,
AMD gained the technilogical lead. AMD processors and chipsets have always held the advantage in value. More ...
