Motherboards Server vs Desktop Motherboard Technology, RAM, Chipsets, and Other Features Are All the Same But and desktop is a concept of GUI used on most operating systems.
Server vs Desktop
Server motherboards typically have two processors, compared to the typical desktop motherboard’s one. As a result, the server motherboard has more cores and more threads with which to process data. In other words, the typical server motherboard can handle a higher computational workload than a desktop motherboard, and for good reason, given that most servers are often powering resource-intensive applications for the military, commercial and industrial sectors, and providing files and resources to many computers at once.
“Server” and “Desktop” are not processor-specific – they describe the intended use of a computer, not its hardware. A 64-bit PC IS NOT NECESSARILY a “Server”. A 32-bit laptop is NOT NECESSARILY a “Desktop”. The terms refer to the role a computer plays in your business or home network.
This is where the confusion comes from. Many people think “64-bit” and “server” are interchangeable terms – that a 64-bit processor needs to be running server software like Microsoft SBS 2003, 2008, 2011, etc., in order for it to be considered a server. And that just isn’t true.
A server motherboard is dedicated to working in a server environment, it was designed with certain features like:
Server motherboards have CPUs (Central Processing Units) designed this way that they don’t overheat or get damaged easily.
They are equipped with server memory, which is expensive but
What is a server motherboard?
A server motherboard, also known as a system board, main circuit board or mainboard, is what we at Trenton Systems like to refer to as “home base” for your server. It’s home to all your server’s primary components, from the chipset to the PCIe slots to all those RDIMM sockets, with one of the most important components being the central processing unit, or CPU often referred to as the brains of your server.
Why Build Your Own Server?
There are much fewer pre-built servers than there are pre-built desktops. With a pre-built server, You will have a much harder time finding them and they become more expensive compared to good reasons to build your own server.
There are some very good reasons to build your own server:
Even if you don’t have the required skills, a NAS can be built by anyone who has the required hardware and time.
