CPU & Motherboards

what are they ?

What is a CPU ?

Until a decade ago, computer processors were primarily marketed based on their speed. It was easy to compare a 2GHz processor to a 2.4GHz processor; the latter is 20% faster. However, when the CPU companies such as AM D and Intel hit a wall around 4GHz, they began to go in a new direction. Instead of creating faster processors, they began to create processors with multiple cores within a single CPU.

What is Motherboard ?

The motherboard serves to connect all of the parts of a computer together. The CPU, memory, hard drive, optical drive, video card,sound card and other ports and expansion cards all connect to the motherboard directly or via cables.The motherboard is the piece of computer hardware that can be thought of as the "back bone" of the PC.
