I know that interface means a point where any two things meet and interact, but I can't seem to wrap my head around the term when they use it in computers.
A chipset performs interface and peripheral functions for the processor. What does it mean?
What do you mean when you say the chipsets are the circuitry that provides interfaces for memory, expansion cards, and onboard peripherals?
The same goes for peripheral functions. I know peripheral devices are external devices used to connect to the CPU, but what is the function? Is it that the chips are responsible to transfer data from the peripheral devices via the bus to the processor?
