how does ... effect the computer speed Watch
amount of RAM
Replacing the HDD and SSD
effect the computer speed
Also, more higher level cache memory means the registers are even faster and so the CPU can fetch data faster.
- Processor speed= Clock speed; It is the number of instructions it can process in one second, so the higher the clock speed the faster it can process data.
More cores on the processor means it can process more data simultaneously, as each core processes 1 thing each.
- HDD is slower than SSD. SSDs can read/write much faster than HDDs, so it means the computer runs faster at opening files etc.
Also a full HDD could also slow down the PC as it might need to defragment the disk while you want to download more data on it to make room for the data.
Hope this helps, if you got any questions I'll try to answer them!
Increasing the processor speed will increase the performance of the computer, as it can process more instructions per second.
Replacing the HDD with an SSD will improve performance. This is because an SSD has no moving parts (whereas HDDs do) - no moving parts means it is much quicker to access data, as SSDs are random access.
