Do You Know Everything About Computer Hardware?

ROFL 04-10-2014

A lot of pieces of hardware go into making up the computers we use on a daily basis. On a broad level, we all know about RAM, hard drives, video cards, and so on, but when you really drill it down to specifics, how much do you really know about the hardware you’re using? There’s a lot to know, and no one can possibly expect you to remember it all.

Fear not though, because this image will show you every type of hardware we use in pictures. Think of it like a computer part cheat sheet!

    how old is this chart? no usb 3.0 type A (only mentioned but no image even though usb 3.1 appeared in 2013). No thunderbolt (exists since 2011), dvi video not diferenctated into DVI-D (digital visual interface digital only) and DVI-I (digital visual interface integral - botha digital and analogue signals - depicted on the chart)
    check this

    plus DMS-59 can be both dual VGA and dual DVI and required adapter cable, and LFH-60 was similar, but I really don't know who would still use them next to display port with much better capabilities.

    If you're going to all the trouble to make this history, why stop at ice, when there was the mfm/rll drives prior to the ide? (Hint: look up ST-506) I mean, you have the 8088/8086 socket, and dip memory (what a pain they were trying to find a bent pin!) but stopped in the drives.

    Then again, there was also to 8080 and Z80 that were pretty popular in the 70s. Before that, most computers were not very "personal".

    I wonder how many people remember g=C800:5?

    I've just began studying for the CompTIA A+ cert exam, so this will be a gem! Great timing!
