Technology Explained

ATX 3.0: ATX 3.0 is a form factor for motherboards and other computer components. It is the latest version of the Advanced Technology Extended (ATX) form factor, which was first introduced in 1995. ATX 3.0 is designed to provide improved power efficiency, increased performance, and better cooling capabilities. It also supports the latest Intel and AMD processors, as well as the latest graphics cards. ATX 3.0 is becoming increasingly popular in the computer industry due to its improved features and performance. It is used in a wide range of desktop computers, from entry-level systems to high-end gaming rigs. ATX 3.0 is also becoming more popular in the server market, as it offers improved power efficiency and better cooling capabilities.

GPU: GPU stands for Graphics Processing Unit and is a specialized type of processor designed to handle graphics-intensive tasks. It is used in the computer industry to render images, videos, and 3D graphics. GPUs are used in gaming consoles, PCs, and mobile devices to provide a smooth and immersive gaming experience. They are also used in the medical field to create 3D models of organs and tissues, and in the automotive industry to create virtual prototypes of cars. GPUs are also used in the field of artificial intelligence to process large amounts of data and create complex models. GPUs are becoming increasingly important in the computer industry as they are able to process large amounts of data quickly and efficiently.

PCIe: PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) is a high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard for connecting components such as graphics cards, sound cards, and network cards to a motherboard. It is the most widely used interface in the computer industry today, and is used in both desktop and laptop computers. PCIe is capable of providing up to 16 times the bandwidth of the older PCI standard, allowing for faster data transfer speeds and improved performance. It is also used in a variety of other applications, such as storage, networking, and communications. PCIe is an essential component of modern computing, and its applications are only expected to grow in the future.

PSU: A Power Supply Unit (PSU) is an essential component of any computer system. It is responsible for providing the necessary power to the components of the computer. It converts the alternating current (AC) from the wall outlet into the direct current (DC) that the computer components need. The PSU also regulates the voltage and current to ensure that the components are not damaged by too much or too little power. The PSU is also responsible for providing the necessary cooling to the components, as well as protecting them from power surges. In the computer industry, PSUs are used in desktop computers, laptops, servers, and other electronic devices. They are also used in gaming consoles, home theater systems, and other consumer electronics.
