Some terms about motherboard

The following are some terms relating to the motherboard you need to know :

  • BIOS (Basic Input Output System), is a means of communication between the operating system with the hardware installed on the motherboard. 
  • Bus, a term which states that the data flow system used hardware. Bus is installed on the motherboard which is used to communicate with the processor. Units used are usually the frequency (Hz) or bit data width.
  • FSB, which stands for Front Side Bus, is a major bus that connects the processor to the motherboard chipset.
  • Heatsink, diletakkandi components on processors, is used to absorb the heat generated when the processor works. Heatsinks are usually equipped with a fan to keep the processor temperature remains stable. Casing is used also need to be considered to have a good air circulation system so that the heat of the processor can be down with a good flow of air.

  • Check Speed, is the speed of a processor or other components. Figures clock speed is the product of the multiplier to the FSB. The higher the clock speed, the higher the performance generated by the processor or hardware components that exist. Units used are megahertz (MHz) or gigahertz (GHz).
  • Overclocking, a technique that is done to improve the performance of a processor, memory, graphics card or by increasing the FSB clock speed component. Usually these techniques will result in excessive heat than before so it required a special cooling both components to be upgraded performance. If excessive heat is not addressed it will result in damage to other components on the computer, so as to carry out the technique you need to provide either cooling or fan and the casing is right in order to reduce the excessive heat.

Trends in the future

the trend of information technology in the future, especially after the presence of a wide range of tablet PCs, there are three main aspects to be considered, namely :

  • Thumbnail
Everything becomes small, after 1947, when the vacuum tube ENIAC turned into transistors smaller, faster and reliable, which serves to send an electrical signal along the circuit. Later developed into an IC (integrated circuit) which is a collection of all circuits in a chip box made ​​of silicon and only half the size of your thumb.

then with a small processor or microprocessor that can be used in PC / notebook / netbook / tablet PC is currently the process is initially carried out with a lot of computers to be more concise by using only a single peripheral.

  • Speed
Thanks to the miniature and the discovery of these processors, the manufacturer may include more components. Faster processing speed and data storage becomes larger.


  • Affordability
One-tenth the price of the current processor thousands of prices in the past. Moving forward with a small component, fast speed and the ability to pack more but the price is also affordable.

Choose which one?
Now, answer the following questions to choose which one you want :

  • I work in touch with a lot of documents such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint for presentations. After that, I can send it via email to the client or others. If this is that often you do then you can choose netbooks as their choice.
  • I am a graphic design on a web company that often travel out of town then the choice of the notebook can be an alternative solution.
  • I often use multimedia on the go, the iPad tablet could be a solution because it has a wide screen and battery life long enough. You can transfer them via iTunes for not being able to watch from a DVD drive. But if you are using a CD / DVD while listening to music or watch videos the notebook of choice for the netbook is not provided optical-drive (unless using external optical-drive).
  • I want to play lots of games, the iPad to be an alternative solution. With the App Store, you can download many games on it.
Whatever type of activity you do, the election to purchase such gadgets will primarily depend on the needs of users in using the gadget.
