Hi Everyone, in previous Blog post we discussed about Entire guide to Computer Network Security and today I am going to discuss here about Different types of motherboards.
Computers Motherboard is the most important component of a system. It is a Printed Circuit Board where all the Computer components of a system are connected. the central processing motherboard by means of socket, slots and connections. Generally a motherboard chipset controls the features and abilities of the motherboard. The chipset is very important for the operation of the system.
Types of Motherboards:
Motherboards, the capacity and efficiency of motherboards differ according to the type of system you use. Motherboards are classified depending on the devices they support:
Motherboards which have all the ports for connecting various devices on board are known as Integrated motherboards. All the latest desktop, server and laptop boards are of the integrated type. Motherboards which do nit support connecting devices are known as Non-Integrated motherboards. Older desktop and server motherboards were of non integrated types.
