[TPU] ASUS Combines Killer NIC and Xonar Audio into Single Addon Card - Page 5

post #41 of 69
Here's a dumbass somewhat barely related questions.

Why is molex and ps2 connectors still around?
I phased out my ps2 keyboard and mice over 5 years ago.
Molex, I only have around cause some stupid PC fan connectors and lighting kits use them.


It's like IDE ribbon vs the sleek sata cables.

WHY?

PS2 is better than USB for keyboards, not sure about mice.

Molex? No idea.

Try telling that to people who think PCI should still be around when PCIe is much better. That's the beef I had with sound cards: too many PCI sound cards and too few PCIe sound cards. The computer industry should've phased out PCI, as I don't see many uses for them in the future.

The Asus ThunderBolt only comes with the Ramapge III Black Edition motherboard. We're not even sure the Asus ThunderBolt will be sold separately yet. Seems highly doubtful until Asus decides to sell it separately.

molex connectors are still used because they are easy to convert to other needs that you may have. I'm not a fan of the connectors, but really they haven't made a new standard that can REALLY replace it, pcie and sata power connectors are too specialized...

Do want! PCI should be around for compatibility not necessarily on every motherboard though. Molex isn't that clunky looking when dressed right.
