- An add-in, printed circuit board that replaces the main processor with a higher-performance processor. Using an accelerator board can reduce upgrading costs substantially, because you don't need to replace the monitor, case, keyboard, and so on. However, the main processor is not the only component that affects the overall performance of your system. Other factors, such as disk-access time and video speed, contribute to a system's performance.See also graphics accelerator board.
