The PCI bus is a high-speed expansion bus that connects higher speed devices. The PCI Express bus is an expansion bus that expands on and doubles the speed of the original PCI bus. The Accelerated Graphics Port is a bus designed by Intel to improve the speed with which 3-D graphics and video transmit. The USB and FireWire bus are buses that eliminate the need to install cards in expansion slots. The PC card bus is the expansion bus for a PC card....

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
