The main circuit board of a microcomputer. The motherboard contains the connectors for attaching additional boards. Typically, the motherboard contains the CPU, BIOS, memory, mass storage interfaces, serial and parallel ports, expansion slots, and all the controllers required to control standard peripheral devices, such as the display screen, keyboard, and disk drive. Collectively, all these chips that reside on the motherboard are known as the motherboard's chipset.
On most PCs, it is possible to add memory chips directly to the motherboard. You may also be able to upgrade to a faster PC by replacing the CPU chip. To add additional core features, you may need to replace the motherboard entirely.
Non-Volatile Memory Express, or NVMe, is a communications standard and protocol developed to fully utilize the speed of the PCIe bus for faster, more efficient storage hardware access.
NVMe was developed to be deployed in computer hardware systems with solid state drives (SSDs).
Mini-SATA, or mSATA, is a low-profile interface connector that enables more effective Serial ATA (SATA) integration in small form-factor drives roughly the size of a business card, such as solid state disks (SSDs). mSATA supports data transfer rates of 1.5 Gb/s and 3.0 Gb/s for high performance while enabling compact integration in a wide variety of applications for the hard drives and solid state drives (SSDs) used in ultraportable laptops, netbooks and similar mobile devices.
An optical drive is a type of computer disk drive that reads and writes data from optical disks through laser beaming technology.This type of drive allows a user to retrieve, edit and delete the content from optical disks such as CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray disks. Optical drives are among the most common computer components.An optical drive may also be known as an optical disk drive (ODD).
A webcam is a small digital video camera directly or indirectly connected to a computer or a computer network.
Webcams come with software that needs to be installed on the computer to help users record video on or stream it from the Web. Webcams are capable of taking pictures as well as high-definition videos, although the video quality can be lower compared to other camera models.
Webcams are also known as Web cameras.
Streaming or media streaming is a technique for transferring data so that it can be processed as a steady and continuous stream. Streaming technologies are becoming increasingly important with the growth of the Internet because most users do not have fast enough access to download large multimedia files quickly. With streaming, the client browser or plug-in can start displaying the data before the entire file has been transmitted.
A head-worn unit containing a microphone and one or two speakers. Usually worn for communication over the internet. Wired headsets plug into the headphone / microphone port on a PC or in the USB port. Used by gamers to communicate whilst in game hands free.
An office suite is a collection of software created by the same vendor and designed to be used for routine tasks within an organization. Typically an office suite includes applications such as word processing, spreadsheets, presentation, email, note taking, database, collaboration and other related types of software. In most cases, each application in the office suite can be installed separately and all applications within the suite support interoperability between each other. Microsoft Office Suite, Lotus Live Notes and LibreOffice are all commonly used office suites.
Antivirus software, or anti-virus software (abbreviated to AV software), also known as anti-malware, is a computer program used to prevent, detect, and remove malware. Antivirus software was originally developed to detect and remove computer viruses, hence the name. However, with the proliferation of other kinds of malware, antivirus software started to provide protection from other computer threats. In particular, modern antivirus software can protect from: malicious browser helper objects (BHOs), browser hijackers, ransomware, keyloggers, backdoors, rootkits, trojan horses, worms, malicious LSPs, dialers, fraudtools, adware and spyware. Some products also include protection from other computer threats, such as infected and malicious URLs, spam, scam and phishing attacks, online identity (privacy), online banking attacks, social engineering techniques, advanced persistent threat (APT) and botnet DDoS attacks.
The advent of display technology has paved the way for the continuous evolution of the monitor, whether it's for computers, television, mobile devices or any device that has a display. The current contenders for top-tier technology being used for display devices includes Super LCD 3 (SLCD3) and Super AMOLED. It should be noted that LED displays are actually just a kind of LCD display that use LED lights as backlight illumination.
The quality of a monitor's performance is assessed using a few key factors:
A keyboard is a peripheral device that enables a user to input text into a computer or any other electronic machinery. A keyboard is an input device and is the most basic way for the user to communicate with a computer. This device is patterned after its predecessor, the typewriter, from which the keyboard inherited its layout, although the keys or letters are arranged to function as electronic switches. The keys include punctuation, alphanumeric and special keys like the Windows key and various multimedia keys, which have specific functions assigned to them.
A mouse is a small handheld input device that controls a computer screen's cursor or pointer in conjunction with the way it is moved on a flat surface. The mouse term name originates from its likeness to a small, corded and elliptical shaped device that looks like a mouse tail. Some mouse devices have integrated features, such as extra buttons that may be programmed and assigned with different commands.
Because the mouse reduces the use of a keyboard, its invention and continuous innovation is considered one of the most important breakthroughs in computer ergonomics.
A gaming chair is one designed specially for the comfort of video game players. The history of the gaming chair originated from racing games such as Need For Speed, FlatOut, Dirt, etc. The original idea was to replicate the feel you have when driving a sporty car. This is why almost all gaming chairs are designed to look like a car seat. They have very high backrests and flared out sides. The sides of the seat will typically have additional padding. The sides of the backrest will be slightly curved inward. Most Models will also have some type of cutouts in the backrest to help add to the sporty look.
Many gaming chair share the following characteristics:
Bucket SeatFixed HeadrestDetachable Lumbar and Head PillowsWinged backrest
In terms of ergonomics, there is debate on whether bucket seats and winged backrests are conducive to long term comfort
