REVIEWING THE BASICS chapter 6
1.
Who are the two major manufacturers of processors?
Intel and AMD
 
2.
What are the four system bus frequencies used by current Intel processors?
The system bus speeds the processor supports. Current Intel processorworks with system buses that run at 1600,1333,1060,or 800 mHz CurrentAMD processors work with system buses that run at 1800, 1000, or 800 mHz
 
3.
What three sockets are currently used for Intel processors in motherboardsfor desktop systems?
LGA1366, LGA 771, LGA 775, and 478 sockets
 
4.
What is the name of the memory cache that is on the same die as theprocessor?
L1 Cache
 
5.
What is the name of the memory cache that is closest to the processor die butis not housed on the die?
L2 Cache
 
6.
What is the name of the Intel technology that allows a processor to handlemultiple threads at the same time?
hyper-threading
 
7.
How many threads can a quad-core processor handle at once?
8
 
8.
What is the name of the memory cache that is shared by cores in a multi-coreprocessor?
L2 Cache
 
 
9.
Which is faster, SRAM or DRAM? Why?
SRAM.Performance improves because RAM stored in memory modules (DIMMs)on the motherboard is dynamic RAM or DRAM and memory in a memorycache is static RAM or SRAM. Dynamic RAM loses data rapidly and must berefreshed often. SRAM does not need refreshing and can hold its data as longas power is available.
 
10.
Which is the first computing technology used by a processor to supportrepetitive looping whereby a processor receives an instruction and then applies itto a stream of data that follows?
MMX (Multimedia Extensions)
 
11.
Which computing technology (SSE1, SSE2, SSE3, or SSE4) better supportsdata-mining applications?
SSE4
 
12.
Which Intel processor family is better performing, the Pentium family or theCore family?
Core
 
13.
Which AMD processor (Turion or Phenom) is designed for laptops?
Turion
 
14.
What are the two major components of a processor cooler assembly?
The cooler sits on top of the processor and consists of a fan and aheat sink, which are fins that draw heat away from the processor.
 
15.
How many pins does the CPU fan header on a motherboard have?
3-416.
If the power connector from the CPU fan has only three pins, it can stillconnect to the 4-pin header, but what functionality is lost?
PWM (Pulse Width Modulation)
 
17.
What is the major disadvantage of using a peltier heat sink?
Condensation
