Advancements in Computer Technology

Over the last decade, the advancements in computer technology have been immense. Today computers are more faster, can handle a lot of work and are priced better. Once upon a time, computers were owned by some people but now-a-days they are everywhere. This article will let you know about the advancements in computer technology.

High Tech Computer Technology Advancements

First of all, let’s look at processors. The two main companies producing processors today are Intel (Pentium processors) and AMD (Athlon processors). There is little difference between them, performance-wise. In almost all cases, more expensive processors will simply run faster. However, it is important to consider that the performance of your processor can be limited by how much memory (RAM) your computer has. For high-end processors, you should make sure to get at least a gigabyte of RAM. RAM is especially important if you plan to use the system for gaming or other graphics-intensive applications.

Hard disk space, at this point, probably isn’t worth caring too much about. Even the cheapest computers now come with ridiculous amounts of hard disk space, far more than you are ever likely to use. It is much better to upgrade to a DVD re-writer drive than to upgrade your hard disk space. DVD’s hold so much data. No matter how big your hard drive is, it is unlikely to hold more than a cheap spindle of DVD-RW discs. As they are re-writable, you are required to buy them only once.

The only other thing you really need to worry about is the graphics card. Again, if you’re going to be doing anything graphically-intensive, then research this further and get a good one. For the average user, though the graphics card that comes with the processor is likely to be fine, even for many less-demanding or older games.

    Computer technology has really developed to a very large extent. The brand ‘Intel’ has become a trusted name and computer shoppers buy Intel brand products without giving second thoughts.

    yes that’s true, pc today come with a lot of space that you don’t need but I believe that using cloud programs that allow you to storage things in the Internet is better than buy a DVD writer
