Motherboard RAM Sound Card and Graphic Card are Vital Components of Every Computer

Motherboard being the central part provides a platform where all components of the computer communicate with each other. Unlike the old computers, the sound card and the graphic card and sometimes the central processing unit come as built-in feature on the motherboard whereas the RAM still holds the same status of being installed in the slots.

Previously, motherboards had been large in size because of the shortcomings of the technology. Although it’s never perfect but in the past the large size of the motherboard was due to many reasons including:

• Presence of so many ports to connect peripheral devices.

• Low bus speed and thus need of more bus lines to provide efficiency

• Large size of slots

• Presence of so many slots

• Use of poor integration of the components

• Large size of central processing unit and other cards like the sound card, graphic card and RAM

Research on technology has brought many innovations and broke new grounds which helped smarter and compact devices to emerge to the surface. Initially there was a little bus speed used for the motherboard due to limited performance of the components like the RAM and central processing unit but now the modern central processing units are more efficient and compact and need high bus speed. Another factor that played role in bringing better performance of the computer parts is the introduction of large scale integration which reduced the size of computer parts and helped bringing out the technology we know as multi-core processors.

There has been a great advancement in improvement of RAM which plays a vital role in the overall performance of the computer. No matter how fast your central processing unit is, it cannot perform fast unless there is a large RAM available for it because RAM provides the data required for processing to the central processing unit. A new motherboard is now capable to support as much as up to 8 gigabytes RAM. This is really enormous because at this much availability of data, the central processing unit can really work fast.

Graphic card is one of the most essential components of all computers. Its basic purpose is to display different graphics through the video display unit. A graphic card with high capacity means getting high quality graphics. All new motherboards have built-in graphic card which is mostly up to 8 megabytes to 16 megabytes. Most of the modern applications do not work well and run smoothly with this limited graphic card capacity. This problem can be solved by either sharing a portion of RAM or by using an external graphic card through AGP slot on the motherboard.

Sound card as the name depicts is meant to produce sound for different applications. Most of the programs particularly games, videos and audios, presentations and web applications involve sounds which are only audible if there is a sound card installed inside the computer and an audio device such as speakers are attached to it. You can add an external sound card to your computer for extra performance.
