It's a crucial component in any laptop or desktop computer, but very few computer owners actually know what a motherboard is or what it does. There's a motherboard (often called a logic board in smaller more mobile devices) sitting in every computer system: the processor, RAM, hard drives, graphics card, and other bits and pieces all plug straight into it.


A Samsung rep has been caught claiming that they are "planning to release a 2GHz dual-core CPU-equipped smartphone by next year", adding that "this product will have the data processing capacities of a regular PC". Not only does Samsung plan on using these chips in their own smartphones, they're also hoping to sell the components to other manufacturers as well.


You may've noticed there are many laptops and PCs out there that support USB 3.0 now, but unfortunately both AMD and Intel haven't added support for the latest version in their chipsets before. This is set to change with AMD's A75 and A70M chipsets, which will be the first to be branded "Superspeed USB". Previously, PC builders have had to use third-party controllers if they wanted to include the much-faster USB 3.0.
