  • CPU – Central Processing Unit Analysis

    CPU – Central Processing Unit Figure 9: Michael Pece and Bhagat Singh, (2016), My Own Component Photos [ONLINE]. Available at: http://s.imgur.com/a/KegII [Accessed 10 November 2016]. The concept of the CPU is a brain for electronics to utilise computer functions resourcefully so that every computer can initiate input and output controls. Inside a CPU is tiny electrical boards (and + end gates) that process the information of the any certain program a user would run. The major CPU manufacturers for computers are Intel, AMD that dominate the market (rivals) along with NVIDIA, HP and Qualcomm. In today’s digital industry many CPUs consist of either being a 32-bit or 64-bit architecture with the higher bit being more useful as it handles more data, however the speed in which a CPU is calculated by ‘GHz’ to explain how clock cycles happen in a second. Lastly the voltage of a CPU is associated with how many cores for processing it has nevertheless the more cores equates to more voltage and heat. Motherboard Figure 10:Michael Pece and Bhagat Singh, (2016), My Own Component Photos [ONLINE]. Available at: http://s.imgur.com/a/KegII [Accessed 10 November 2016]. The concept of the motherboard is being one of the biggest components…

  • Advantages And Cons Of Technology

    treatment. The CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the part of a computer system that is commonly referred to as the "brains" of a computer. The CPU is also known as the processor or microprocessor. The CPU is responsible for executing a sequence of stored instructions called a program. It carries out the instructions of a computer program by performing the basic arithmetical, logical, and input/output operations of the system. It is located in a socket connected to the motherboard. The better the…

  • Characteristics Of Creating An Oracle Database

    With memory and central processing unit (CPU) they are discussing the different processors and Random Access Memory (RAM) and how that can limit the speed of the database being called upon. With just about anything to with computer Oracle does have server minimum hardware and memory requirements and it is very basic but this is just the minimum when you should if needed go above and beyond the minimum requirements. Oracle asks for a minimum of 4 gigabytes of Random Access Memory, and a central…

  • The Basics Of Computers

    computer through cables. Computer Tower: The computer tower, or computer case is what holds all the components together. It encases everything like your body encases your organs. It has different ports which lets you connect various external hardware. A tower looks like this: However, not all computer cases are like that. For a desktop computer, the case looks like this: which allows you to put in on top of a table/desk hence the name “desktop”. Some computers don’t have a tower such as an all…

  • My Professor's Definition Of A Computer

    Information technology devices have become so fast and computationally powerful due to the improvement and integration of several factors. Some of these factors include the ability to manufacture smaller microprocessors that contain billions of transistors. The overall speed of a computer and how fast it is able to process data is controlled by the Central Processing Unit or CPU. Today’s computers are designed with multi-core processors that capable of processing over 100 billion instructions…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Parallel Computing

    A traditional computer simply executes a sequence of commands in a single order - like oxen plowing a field. But, according to Blaise Barney of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, parallel computing works by partitioning a problem into multiple tasks which can be done at the same time. For example, your graphics processor may render each section of the screen separately or a signal processing program might apply multiple filters to audio data simultaneously. Think of it as if the…

  • Intel Xeon Phi Case Study

    The Intel Corporation made the Xeon Phi in November 2012 with adaptable programming, energy viability etc. This is an alternate stage and which uses the vector changing unit and interconnections. The High execution machines essentially uses the Intel Xeon phi coprocessor and the Nvidia tesla coprocessors. The Nvidia tesla coprocessor mostly uses the GPU’s, which will eat up low essentialness. To make these programming models we make usage of OpenMP for Intel Xeon and for Nvidia we make use of…
