Default Core Hardware Quiz #16: DMA Channels

Which of the following DMA channels does the floppy drive usually take?


Answer: C - DMA2

Explanation: DMA stands for Direct Memory Access. This allows a device to access the RAM directly through it's own bus which bypasses the CPU entirely. Multiple DMA channels cannot be assigned to a single device. These "channels" can even be seen on the motherboad itself.
