Performance-based question: Put these computer interface standards in order from slowest speed to fastest. Use all of the available options.
A) USB 2.0
B) SATA revision 2.0
D) Bluetooth version 2.0 + EDR
E) My computer when I need to send an important email
The answer: D) Bluetooth version 2.0 + EDR (3 Mbit/sec), C) 802.11g (54 Mbit/sec), A) USB 2.0 (480 Mbit/sec), B) SATA revision 2.0 (3.0 Gbit/sec)
I believe there’s a subsystem in the CPU that sets the speed of the computer to be inversely related to the importance of the task. Therefore, I think it’s fair to mark E) as the slowest ever.
