)A miniature display of a page to be printed. Thumbnails enable you to see the layout of many pages on the screen at once. Generally, thumbnails are too small to show the actual text, so greeking is used to indicate how the text will look.
Intel’s Thunderbolt input/output (I/O) technology is designed to connect high-performance peripherals and HD video displays via a single port using two communications methods, or protocols, PCI Express for data transfer and DisplayPort for displays. Thunderbolt provides data transfer rates up to 10 Gbps, which is 20 times faster than the USB 2.0 standard and 12 […]
(v.) In PCs, to convert a 16-bit memory address to a 32-bit address, and vice versa. Thunking is necessary because Intel’s older 16-bit microprocessors used an addressing scheme called segmented memory, whereas their 32-bit microprocessors use a flat address space . Windows 95 supports a thunk mechanism to enable 32-bit programs to call 16-bit DLLs. […]
In technology terms, tick-tock typically refers to Intel’s model of releasing new processor families each year, with the “tick” applying to processors fabricated on a smaller die shrink and the “tock” representing processors that is based on a new processor microarchitecture. The “tick” processors feature enhanced performance and energy efficiency on a smaller, more refined […]
- Tiered Storage
Tiered storage is an underlying principle of ILM (information lifecycle management). It is a storage networking method where data is stored on various types of media based on performance, availability and recovery requirements. For example, data intended for restoration in the event of data loss or corruption could be stored locally — for fast recovery […]
- tight coupling
(1) In computer science, tight coupling (or tightly coupled) is a type of coupling that describes a system in which hardware and software are not only linked together, but are also dependant upon each other. In a tightly coupled system where multiple systems share a workload, the entire system usually would need to be powered […]
