Which PC hardware device connects input and output devices to your CPU?
- ShadowLv 49 months agoFavourite answer
The motherboard, more specifically, the North and South Bridges. The North Bridge handles communication between RAM, GPU, HDD and CPU along with the South Bridge. The South Bridge handles communication between all peripheral devices and the North Bridge.

Technically the PC hasn't used the NorthBridge and Southbridge type chipsets in 10 years.
The functions of the NorthBridge, which incluse the memory controller and some PCI-Express lanes that are reserved for the Graphics card have been moved to the CPU.
The functions of the SouthBridge have been moved to the PCH chipset.
The PCH is responsible for dealing with the USB ports for the input devices, and Sata ports which deal with the storage drives. The PCH also has a number of PCI-Express lanes for add on devices like NVMe storage drives and Wifi Cards.
The PCI-Express lanes that are derived from the CPU deal with the Graphics card.
