Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
Please tell me what are the PCI-X slots used for? I am a novice at this
so please explain in an elementary way i.e. ABC123 - Thanks
PCI-X is powerful expansion port. The purpose of the slots on your motherboard is for you to be able to install a component that doesn't already exist hardwired on your motherboard. The most common use is for high speed internet connections called a network or ethernet card (the fat phone cord type of connection, also called cat-5).
PCI-X slots can take both PCI-X and certain types of PCI cards. The processing power potential of the slot is only fully used in certain situations and with the correct components.
PCI-X is for you to add a component to your computer, most likely a high speed internet card. You should use the full slot by purchasing a PCI-X compliant Ethernet card. This gives you the potential to transfer data at super high speed
