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.
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)
Which computing technology (SSE1, SSE2, SSE3, or SSE4) better supportsdata-mining applications?
Which Intel processor family is better performing, the Pentium family or theCore family?
Which AMD processor (Turion or Phenom) is designed for laptops?
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.
How many pins does the CPU fan header on a motherboard have?
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)
What is the major disadvantage of using a peltier heat sink?
