TestOut Flashcards – 10.1 Component Selection
selection criteria would be most important for this system?
A. Gigabit Ethernet adapter
B. RAID O array
C. High-end video adapter with GPU
D. 64-bit 6-core processor
Explanation: A thin client only needs to be able to connect to a remote desktop session. As such, it only needs to meet the minimum requirements for running Windows locally. You should select a system with the fastest network adapter supported by the network it will be connected to. Gigabit speeds (or faster) are recommended. This will help ensure that the remote desktop session provides a reasonable end-user experience. A RAID O array, high-end video adapter, or 6-core CPU really isn’t needed in this type of system.
A. Video card with HDMI output
B. RAID 5 disk array
C. HTPC form factor
D. 64-bit processor with 6 cores
E. RAM configured to run in triple-channel mode
Explanation: A video card with HDMI output and an HTPC form factor would be more appropriate for a home theater system. A RAID 5 disk array, 6-core CPU, and triple-channel RAM would be more appropriate for a virtualization workstation.
be used by a software engineer to run virtual machines for app testing, Which criteria should be included in your
design for this system? (Select two)
A. HTPC form factor
B. 64-bit processor with 6 cores
C. RAM configured to run in triple-channel mode
D. Video card with HDMI output
E. RAID 5 disk array
Explanation: Virtual machines place a very heavy load on the host systems RAM and CPU. Therefore, the most important criteria to be included in the design for this workstation would be:
• RAM configured to run in triple-channel mode
• 64-bit processor with 6 cores
A video card with HDMI output and an HTPC form factor would be more appropriate for a home theater system. A RAID 5 disk array would be appropriate for a virtualization workstation, but is less important than the choice of processor and RAM.
A. RAID 1+0 array
B. 64-bit multi-core processor
C. RAID O array
D. High-end video adapter with GPU
E. Pentium 4 processor with hyper-threading
Explanation: The following hardware selection criteria would be most important for a PC system that will be used as a file and printer server in a small business:
• RAID 1+0 array
• 64-bit multi-core processor
A Pentium 4 hyper-threading CPU would use a 32-bit architecture. A high-end video board would not be required for a server system. A RAID 0 array offers performance, but does not protect data with redundancy.
