Sound card is an integral attribute of a multimedia computer. Previously, when PCs were ancient and terribly slow, you had to buy a sound card for a computer separately, select the necessary type of connector, install it, and then carefully configure it in the right program. Who remembers what DOS applications are, he will understand me 🙂
Now – everything is much simpler! Sound cards for computers are divided into several categories:
made in the form of a separate printed circuit board, installed inside the system unit (discrete)
integrated (on board), which are an integral part of the motherboard
external (for example – USB) solutions Continue reading
So, the computer’s RAM, which is also called volatile. She – DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory) – dynamic random access memory or random access memory, in abbreviated form – RAM.
Let’s see why it is called that way? While the computer is in operation, all data and programs that are running while the user is working are stored in RAM. The word “volatile” in relation to memory means only that when the system unit is turned off (shut down), the computer’s RAM is reset. All its contents disappear.
There is also non-volatile memory – this is the hard drive of your computer, because the data on it is saved even after turning off the power. Continue reading
Let’s start our topic with the fact that network cards are different and may differ, both in the range of tasks to be solved and in the form factor (appearance). A network card is also often referred to as an Ethernet (Ethernet) controller, network adapter or NIC (Network Interface Card) adapter.
First of all, let’s divide network cards into two large groups:
External network cards
Built-in or integrated (onboard)
Let’s start with the external ones. From the name itself, it follows that network cards of this type are installed in the computer system unit additionally (as a separate expansion card) or as another external device. Continue reading
