Supercomputer: A supercomputer is the largest and most powerful type of computer available, occupying large rooms and even entire floors of a building. Supercomputers are often employed in fields such as cryptanalysis (code breaking), molecular modeling, weather forecasting, and climate mapping. Supercomputers typically are used in high-tech academic, governmental, and scientific research facilities. 7 shows a supercomputer. 7 This IBM Blue Gene/P supercomputer is located at the Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont, Illinois, USA.

An average desktop PC might have 4GB to 8GB of system memory, which might be installed in either two or four DIMM slots. The 32-bit version of Windows can support only 4GB of RAM. If your computer has more than that, make sure you have the 64-bit version of Windows or some of your RAM will be unused. Sometimes the motherboard has a limit on the amount of RAM that can be recognized, so check this before you rush out and buy more RAM. TIP Quick Review 1. What is the difference between static and dynamic memory?

Quick Review 1. If you see a DVI port built into a motherboard, what type of capability can you assume is built into the motherboard? 2. What is PCI Express (PCIe)? Understanding Power Supplies The power from your wall outlet is alternating current (AC), and is either 110 volt (v) or 220v, depending on the country in which you live. Computer components require direct current (DC) and require much lower voltages. A power supply has two jobs: power supply A component that converts AC power from a wall outlet to DC power and decreases the voltage to the level needed for the computer to operate.
