Definition And Function Motherboard
Function of motherboard is Control center that regulates the work of all the components attached to him.
Manage the electrical power to each component of the PC.
All data traffic is set by the motherboard, ranging from peyimpanan devices (hard disk, CD-ROM), data input devices (keyboard, mouse, scanner), or a printer to print.
In the late 1980s and during the decade of the 1990s, for the PC processor market is dominated by Intel. There are several companies processors for PCs, but their influence is far less than Intel. Besides the average processor still made them take the x86 design made by Intel, too.
By the end of the 90′s and early 2000, conditions changed. Processor market is no longer so dependent on Intel, because their competitor, AMD, issued K6-2 processor and the Athlon that was able to compete with processors made by Intel.
And in the same year a chipset-producing industries from Taiwan, VIA Technologies, also has been able to make a quality chipsets and low cost. The motherboard manufacturer is no longer dependent on Intel to design and make their motherboards, so the development of technology and design of the motherboard has increased very rapidly.
In addition, fever overclocking also contribute their role in the development of the motherboard world. The motherboard manufacturers competing to out motherboards designed to provide a high level of overclocking, but still able to maintain system stability. Anyway, if there is any computer that can not be used to overclock the processor and memory, then almost certainly the motherboard is not sold on the market.
Here is a list of motherboard manufacturers:
TERMS TO MOTHERBOARD
Stands for Basic Input / Output System. Is a collection of information is the motherboard and also the software contains the basic commands. The main function is as a means of communication between the operating system with hardware that is installed on the motherboard.
The term which states that the data flow system used hardware installed on the motherboard to communicate with the processor. The unit used is usually the frequency (Hertz) or the width of data bits.
3. Clock Speed
This term is used to denote the speed of a processor or other components. Figures obtained from the clock speed of the FSB multiplier multiplication. The higher clock speed, the higher the performance generated by the processor or hardware components are. The unit used is usually the megahertz (MHz) or gigahertz (GHz). Usually referred to as external speed of a processor.
Stands for Front Side Bus, the main bus connecting the processor to the motherboard chipset. The unit used is megahertz (MHz).
Components placed on the processor. Its function is to absorb the heat generated when the processor works. Usually a heatsink has a fan to keep the processor temperature remains stable.
One technique is to improve processor performance, memory, graphics card, by increasing the FSB or clock speed of these components. This technique requires a special cooling system components, because it produces excessive heat, where this excess heat can damage the system. PC
