Expansion Bus Types Fact Sheet 2.6.3

True or false, Expansion slots provide a connection for a number of devices and functions. To add features to your computer, you can typically add a peripheral card to an existing bus slot? True
What does the acronym PCI mean? Peripheral Component Interconnect
True or false, PCI supports a 32- or 64-bit I/O bus providing compatibility with both 486 and Pentium machines? True
True or false, This bus is processor independent. This means that the CPU and the PCI bus can process concurrently? True
True or false, PCI is plug-and-play, meaning that newly installed devices can be detected and configured automatically? True
PCI buses are most commonly used for which type of devices? sound cards, modems, network cards, and storage device controller
PCI slots are typically which color? white
Which type of small form factor computers, might include a mini-PCI slot? Laptops or micro-ATX systems
True or false, Mini-PCI devices are small cards with either 100- or 124-pins? True
What is a typical use for a mini-PCI slot inside a laptop computer? Wireless card
What does the acronym PCIe mean? Peripheral Component Interconnect Express
What is the next generation I/O bus architecture? PCIe
Rather than a shared bus, which architecture type uses a slot that links to a switch which prioritizes and routes data through a point-to-point dedicated connection and provides a serial full-duplex method of transmission? PCIe
Basic PCIe provides one lane for transmission (x1), at a transfer rate of? 2.5 Gbps
True or false, PCIe can also provide multiple transmission lanes? (x2, x4, x8, x16, x32) True
In addition to greatly increased speed, PCIe also offers? Higher quality service
True or false, PCIe is backwards compatible and allows legacy PCI technology to be run in the same system? For example, you can have both PCIe and PCI buses in the same system. True
PCIe buses are most commonly used for Which type of devices in modern computer systems? Video cards
True or false, many other devices can be designed for PCIe buses? True
What does the acronym AGP mean? Accelerated Graphics Port
What is similar to PCI, but designed specifically for graphics support? AGP
True or false, motherboards that provide AGP support have a single AGP slot? True
AGP is commonly used for which type of devices in modern computer systems? Video cards
AGP is being replaced by which type of architecture? PCIe
AGP slots are typically which color? Brown
What does the acronym AMR mean? Audio/Modem Riser
True or false, a riser card is not a bus, but rather a card that attaches to the motherboard and allows inserting additional cards? True
What is the name of a card that is inserted into a riser card? Daughter card
AMR slots typically provide which type of functions? Sound or modem
What does the acronym CNR mean? Communications Network Riser
CNR is a riser card slot not a bus that allows for inserting which type of functions? networking, wireless communication, sound, or modem
