Purpose Nearly Everyone Knows
IT332-3: Evaluate CPU, RAM, input, output, and peripheral devices as components used in system architecture.
Nearly everyone knows how to use a computer, but only a handful of users know or even show interest in what happens inside the computer. Throughout the past decades, the architecture has changed little; however, it is still far more advanced and more productive, which means also faster. In this assignment, you will have the opportunity to learn about computer architecture and explain how it processes information and operates.
Write a 3-page paper (2 pages of written content and 1 diagram) explaining the inner workings of a computer. Include a discussion of the CPU and the concept of single, dual, and multi-core technologies. Also, explain the relation between CPU, memory, and bus. Discuss registers, data moving through the bus, memory allocation, and L cache.
The minimum concepts to cover and explain in the paper are the CPU, memory, bus, cache, address registers, data movement instructions, and multiprocessing. The items listed should be tied together and their interworking with each other described and explained.
Your paper should be 2 pages of written content and 1 diagram. Be sure to use appropriate APA format and cite your textbook or other sources that you used in your paper.
The paper should contain sufficient information to adequately answer the questions and contain no spelling, grammar, or APA errors. Points deducted from grade for each writing, spelling, or grammar error are at your instructor’s discretion.
