Myths and Legend of the PC – Part 1 ” Motherboard integrado” Our first myth is: ” The plates mother do not have to be integradas.” Practically it does not spend week without it comes somebody to our premises to find out prices of computers and asks classic ” mother it is integrated? Because they said to me that separado” is better yet;. When we asked to them because of that affirmation, these are some of the answers: Because if one of the components is broken I must change all the plate? Because therefore him I can put the plates that I want instead of to use those that comes integrated. We see the answer these objections ” Because if it breaks one of the plates I must myself change all the placa”: It is not truth. If the plate of video, or audio, or the modem or the plate of network are broken, I always can add one since the plates have socles to this end. ” Because therefore him I can put the plates that I want instead of to use those that comes integradas.” Also it is false, since if I do not like some of the plates that come I can replace putting it the one that I want in one of the socles, and annulling the one that on comes board. If it is by the cost subject, generally the plates that are not integrated even leave sometimes more faces than the integrated one (for a reason that we will see more ahead).
It could understand this argument slightly if one were a professional who needs plates with very particular specifications, and that are able to distinguish subtle differences between plates. But generally the case is not that, and the plates that come integrated are than sufficient more for the use that is going away to give to him the equipment. We have even seen cases in that the user following that myth has bought equipment with plates nonintegrated of worse quality than the integrated ones. In fact, I am of the opinion that the integrated plates are BETTER than not integrated. On the one hand the tendency to the miniaturization would not be possible without integration.
They would not exist laptops, palm or the cellular ones. Sometimes somebody asked when buying a television that plate had, or if it were with mother integrated? By all means that no! He is everything integrated! As far as the cost, integration allows a standardization and one scale that is not possible of another way. Finally, in an integrated plate, the design already includes the way plates to optimize the data flow among them, whereas in always integrated the possibility of incompatibilidades does not exist, besides adding the passage of data through socle, which diminishes the yield. In order to illustrate a little plus the subject, we imagine that the question considered for a car. What car seems to him that it is going to walk better? A Ford that leaves makes with all the parts of Ford, or a car ” not integrado” fact with bodywork of Ford, motor of Fiat, carburetor of Chevrolet and distributor of Renault? It seems to me that in this case there are no doubts that would be first, is not certain? Then why it would have to be different with a computer?
