Memory works in the same way. Every program that runs on a computer uses some of the memory. The Operating System, internet browsers, printers, word processing programs (like Microsoft Word) and games all need memory to run. The more memory you have, the faster your programs will run.
Upgrading memory is the easiest way to increase the speed of a computer.
Everyone has probably heard of Pentium and AMD processors. What do they do, and why are there different speeds associated with processors?
|The processor is like the brain of the computer. And it is really good at math. All information on a computer is, in it’s simplest form, binary, or numbers. The processor translates all of those numbers into a language that humans can understand.|
Faster speeds mean more calculations can be made in a shorter amount of time. Processing more data will help make your computer run faster.
The motherboard is the part of the computer that ties everything in together. The processor, memory, hard drive, and other devices are all connected together by the motherboard. Through chips and circuits, all the functions of computer are completed.
