This video explains the different components of a computer and their roles. The processor is the main component responsible for the computer's functions, and RAM serves as a buffer between the processor and storage. The motherboard connects all the components, including the power supply and cooling system, and includes a platform controller hub (PCH). Graphics are generated using a graphics processing unit (GPU). The GPU connects to the motherboard using PCI-Express slots and contains its own RAM and modulator. The motherboard also includes components for sound, networking, expansion, and fan control. The video provides a diagram showing the main components of a computer.

  • 00:00:00 In this section, the video explains the components of a PC and their roles. The most important component is the processor, which is responsible for the majority of the computer's work. The processor is essentially like a calculator that performs arithmetic calculations and executes instructions for all the computer's functions. Another important component is the storage, which is typically an SSD M.2 that stores data as a series of zeros and ones. To access the data stored in the storage, the computer uses RAM, which serves as a buffer between the storage and the processor. The RAM stores the data temporarily that the processor needs to access and work with, and then sends it back to the storage for permanent storage.
  • 00:05:00 In this section, the transcript discusses the RAM component and how it stores data for the processor to access quickly. The RAM is much faster than the typical long-term storage device, but it has a small capacity and loses all data when the computer is turned off. The video explains how the RAM is used by the processor and how a programmer decides which data needs to go into the RAM. The transcript also delves into the motherboard or the "placa base," which is a complex component with many features. The socket or zócalo allows the processor to connect to the motherboard, and the RAM slots connect to the processor through the micro canals or bus de ram. The section also briefly discusses power supply and long-term storage in the motherboard.
  • 00:10:00 In this section, the video explains the role of the power supply in a PC, which transforms the alternating current that we receive through the power outlet into different rails of direct current with varying voltages that are required by different parts of the computer. The motherboard is where the power supply is connected, and it uses a module regulator of voltage to control the exact voltage that is delivered to the processor. The video also discusses the importance of cooling the processor, which generates heat due to the resistance of the semiconductor material it uses to process the data. Without proper cooling, the processor could easily burn out, which is why every PC is equipped with a heat sink or a liquid cooler, in addition to the built-in cooling system of the case.
  • 00:15:00 In this section, the video explains the components of a PC, starting with the system’s cooling system, which includes a water cooler and a radiator to regulate the temperature. The video also discusses the use of the USB and how this technology is connected to the motherboard, as well as the “pichiaje,” which is the platform controller hub (PCH), or assistant, that manages the different peripherals, circuits, and connections that a PC has. The PCH also regulates the buses that connect the secondary processing chips to the primary processor. Finally, the video discusses how the paste component works to connect the different metal surfaces in order to transfer heat between them.
  • 00:20:00 In this section, the video explains how a modern computer generates images for display, which is a task that the main processor struggles to do efficiently. To address this issue, computers use dedicated graphics processing units (GPU) that function in parallel to the main processor. The GPU receives instructions from the processor to generate a grid of pixels to produce the image on the monitor or screen. While some processors come with integrated GPUs, complex tasks such as gaming, 3D effects, and video editing require more powerful GPUs, which are often provided by dedicated graphics cards. These cards require cooling similar to the main processor, and a typical GPU contains its own RAM and modulator that applies voltage to the processor.
  • 00:25:00 In this section, the video provides an explanation of how the graphics card connects to the motherboard using PCI-Express slots, which have direct access to the processor. The RAM is also used to store data for the graphics card to work in real-time. The graphics card is expensive due to the high number of components it has, mainly the chip, processor, and RAM. It is a mini-computer designed specifically for graphic calculations and scientific applications. When playing a video game online, information such as the position of enemies and gunshots are transmitted through the cable, and the processor modifies the game data and instructs the graphics card to calculate the view and display it directly to the screen. The keyboard and mouse's data are sent to the PC through USB, and the processor determines which program to execute the input.
  • 00:30:00 In this section of the video, the speaker explains the components of a computer's motherboard that are responsible for sound and networking. The motherboard includes a small processor dedicated to converting digital music and sound to analog and includes one or more network cards that interpret electrical signals received via Ethernet cables and pass the data directly to the computer. The motherboard also contains the BIOS, which checks that everything is properly connected and allows the system to function correctly, as well as components for fans, additional USB ports, RGB lighting, and other expansions. The video concludes with a diagram showing the main components of a computer, including the processor, storage, power, peripherals, and graphics.
