A chip packaging design used in Intel’s newer Pentium II chipsets, starting with the Xeon CPU. While the Slot 1 interface features a 242-contact connector, Slot 2 uses a somewhat wider 330-contact connector. The biggest difference between Slot 1 and Slot 2, though, is that the Slot 2 design allows the CPU to communicate with the L2 cache at the CPU’s full clock speed. In contrast, Slot 1 only supports communication between the L2 cache and CPU at half the CPU’s clock speed.
- Slot 1
The form factor for Intel’s Pentium II processors. The Slot 1 package replaces the Socket 7 and Socket 8 form factors used by previous Pentium processors. Slot 1 is a 242-contact daughtercard slot that accepts a microprocessor packaged as a Single Edge Contact (SEC) cartridge. A motherboard can have one or two Slot 1s.
An object-oriented operating system and programming language developed at Xerox Corporation’s Palo Alto Research Center. Smalltalk was the first object-oriented programming language (Simula was the very first). Although it never achieved the commercial success of other languages such as C++ and Java, Smalltalk is considered by many to be the only true object-oriented programming environment, […]
In Semantic Web terminology, SmartLinks point to things, where regular links point to pages. SmartLinks pulls in the best information from around the Web, right into the user’s context. For example, instead of interacting with the pointer to a book, with SmartLink, the user is interacting with the actual book.
In Web browsers, a SmartMenu is a set of context-sensitive shortcuts personalized based on the user’s browsing history. Context-sensitive means that entries change depending on what the user is looking at. The personalization means that the sites in the shortcuts are specific to the user.
A disk caching system provided by Microsoft with later versions of DOS and used with Windows 3.1. Disk caching provides faster access to data on a hard disk. Smartdrive allows you to monitor how the cache is used and change the cache size to optimize performance. Starting with Windows 95, Smartdrive was replaced by a […]
