The BIOS, the basic I / O system of the personal computer, has accompanied our lives since 1979. For over three decades we have been at the mercy of an aging component that has not changed much since the late XNUMXs. Now, "slightly late," an appropriate alternative to the season is emerging there UEFI.
Three decades are an eternity in the frenzied technological world that engenders new inventions day and night. Few components have changed almost over the years due to the need for faster computing that can process more data. The boss, however, remained as he had been in the world. This has created many difficulties over the years, especially with the proliferation of 64 bit (or bit) computing for Hebrew enthusiasts. The bios were not designed to run against the hardware of the 2000s, and there is an old vestige in our computer systems.
Of course, the passing of the boss in our lives even after many years was accompanied by a price tag. The BIOS extends the time it takes to load the modern operating system in vain and supports external devices such as drives USB Deficient and not optimal. All these raised the need to find an alternative.
(Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) has already been used in server farms and the business sector but is only now finding its way into the private sector as well. , So the time that elapses between turning on the computer and the start of the operating system is only about 10-20 seconds.About a year ago, Phoenix introduced UEFI-based computer
, But since technology has once again disappeared from the surface - now, She seems to be growing up again
- Starting in 2011, we can also, we promise, enjoy booting the computer in a few seconds.
It would probably take several more years for the old boss to lose his absolute control and turn the throne over to his young heir. Apparently good things are over, too, and the time has come to sign a respected chapter in the history of the personal computer. Incidentally, the 31-year-old bios is in good company,HDD
Mechanical systems are also based on Technology
Which has not changed materially for decades, now turn (in the wake of the steady drop in prices) into favor of drivers SSD
Electronic products. It is probably time to move forward a step or two ahead and leave the technologies we have been loyal to for decades.
