The New Age of Motherboards

The New Age [pic]Motherboards
I, Shubhankar have taken the example of ASUS P7H57D-V EVO or simply known as Intel H57 Express Chipset. But first we will discuss about normal motherboards. The primary component of a computer is the motherboard. The motherboard is the hub which is used to connect all of the computer's essential components. As its name suggests, the motherboard acts as a parent board, which takes the form of a large printed circuit with connectors for expansion cards, memory modules, the processor, etc.
Now I won’t go into all the information available to me about the old motherboards but now I will tell you about the H57. It delivers new technologies and innovative capabilities. This chipset supports the latest Intel Core i3 and Core i5 LGA 1156 socket processors that have an on-die integrated graphics and DDR3 memory controller. Highlighted features include Super speed USB 3.0 support that promises a super-fast transfer rate of up to 5 GBPS; which is an improvement of almost 10 times over USB 2.0. Additionally, backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 assures users of long term use of their life.H57 Series Motherboards with USB 3.0 and Display Port Interface Delivering Super speed Data Transfer and Richer Video Quality for Exceptional Hi-Def Multimedia Platform Gacy USB 2.0.
Chipset - The chipset is an electronic circuit whose job is to coordinate data transfers between the various components of the computer processor. As the chipset is integrated into the motherboard, it is important to choose a motherboard which includes a recent chipset, in order to maximize the computer's upgradeability.
Features of the Old System
VRM (Voltage Regulator Module)
It used to be that every digital chip on a motherboard ran at the same voltage. That began to change as chip designers dropped voltage to save power or move into a more advanced semiconductor manufacturing process. The smaller transistor in an advanced process needs lower voltages; otherwise it...
