The New Age Of Motherboards Essay

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.

The smaller transistor in an advanced process needs lower voltages; otherwise it might arc between the transistors. The processor has moved most quickly down this voltage curve, and now it needs a special voltage that is different from the 3.3V or 5V used by the rest of the board. New chipsets and memory are also starting to use lower voltages
Clocks
The PC motherboard has components running at several different frequencies. In system design, multiple clocks can be either asynchronous or synchronous. Two clock signals are said to be synchronous if one can be derived from the other. For instance, the FSB runs at a multiple of the internal CPU clock. As an example, a 600 MHz Pentium III would have a multiple of 6, running synchronously with the 100 MHz system bus. The PCI bus is derived from this same clock, so the PCI bus would run at 1/3 of the system clock (33 MHz).
Connectors
We'll cover most of the connectors during our tour of a couple of real motherboards. Things have gotten a lot easier for connecting to a motherboard, since there are now fewer connectors and most of the critical ones are now "keyed" (and color coded) to prevent improper cable insertion. Not all of the features on a motherboard are needed for each system implementation, so you may find that several of the connectors are unused.
Jumpers
Most new motherboards now offer a "jumper-less" mode where all functions are controlled through the BIOS. Often a new motherboard doesn't need to have a single jumper changed. Some motherboards allow users to disable the BIOS control and handle all settings through onboard jumpers.
Riser Cards
In our discussion of AC'97, we mentioned the ability to avoid the cost of a full PCI card for audio or networking. Instead, there are a couple of competing standards for simple, low-cost cards that provide external connectors to audio devices, modems or networking. These riser cards plug into a special socket, instead of a PCI connector. From the back of the PC, it looks no different. Like many PC standards, there is a version promoted by Intel, and then there is a standard used by almost everyone else.
