Motherboard is the specific board itself that has memory slots, expansion card slots, IDE connectors, etc. The chipset is sort of like the software that runs on the board.

A motherboard chipset refers to the integrated set of electronic elements in the computer. This is what will facilitate the flow of data between the memory and the processor as well as the other peripherals.

The chipset is a part of a motherboard. One has no purpose without the other.

The chipset and processor are both major components inside a computer. The processor is the main CPU or central processing unit that does the processing or main work. The chipset is part of the motherboard that communicates with the computer's CPU, memory, and hardware.

Motherboard is a Printed Circuit board (PCB) in which chipsets are designed like Intel 965 chipset

The difference between BIOS and UEFI is built into the motherboard chipset; you cannot change an existing motherboard from BIOS to UEFI, all you can do is replace the entire motherboard (and probably the CPU and the RAM as well) with an UEFI based motherboard. (Deleted the previous answer in its entirety because it was compl Save etely incorrect)

845 and 865 motheboard support ddr1 ram and 915 nad 945 motherboard support ddr2 ram

Basicly, it isn't much diffrent, it just supports another type of processor. the 845 chipset support FSB 400 and FSB 533, and also support ICH 4 and DDR1 RAM only, however 945 chipset support FSB 533, 667 and 800 with ICH 7 and DDR2 RAM. A 478 socket with 533 FSB processor can be used in both 845 and 945 chipset motherboard with 478 pin socket installed. the processor will give more performance in later motherboard

The Nehalem chipset connects directly to the processor rather than to the North Bridge.

The 82945G Express Chipset is not a graphics card, it is a motherboard chipset. Your motherboard may have an onboard video card, but this is not it. However, a motherboard which uses the 82945G chipset should be perfectly capable of supporting a video card which has pixel shader 1.1 & higher.

These chips are called a "Chipset", A chipset is usually designed to work with a specific family of microprocessors. Because it controls communications between the processor and external devices, the chipset plays a crucial role in determining system performance

A chipset is a portion of a computers motherboard which is involved with communication between different parts of the computer. I am unaware of an "8229" chipset, however for a list of some more common chipsets, you can check out

The AMD 770 is a chipset used in computer motherboards. think of it like CPU is its brain, the chipset is the nerves in the spinal column. They don't do much on their own, but they're a necessary connection point between the brain and the rest of the body. The 770 chipset is the same.

Chipset is responsible for communication between CPU and other computer parts. Chipset is responsible for communication between CPU and other computer parts.

yes, providing the motherboard has the correct slot for it which is why slot standards exist.
