Poster illustrates computer slots/sockets/modules/plugs etc. #VintageComputing #Retrocomputing @DeviantArt
When working on older computers, it can be confusing what’s a DDR vs. DDR2 memory stick, an LGA775 socket from an AM3. DVI digital vs. analog+digital. VESA slot vs. PCI.
I found an excellent poster by user Sonic840 which has pictures and descriptions of dozens and dozens of items you can encounter on PCs, Macs, and more.
Check it out on Deviant Art – there is a PDF and you can order a physical print like I did.
