RAM: Random Access Memory
* -------------------------------------------------

* -------------------------------------------------

* -------------------------------------------------
Random Access Memory is a form of computer data storage, very commonly found in computers and user electronic devices. I’m gonna be explaining some information about RAM and its uses and purposes. Such things like the main forms of RAM, The forms used in Personal Computers, and the advantages of having more and understanding the amount of RAM you have in your device or PC. In learning more about RAM could improve your computing experience. * -------------------------------------------------

There are two main forms of RAM Static RAM and Dynamic RAM. “ In static RAM, a bit of data is stored using the state of a flip-flop.” (Random-access Memory.) This form of RAM is faster and requires less power than DRAM, and is usually used as cache memory for the CPU. “DRAM stores a bit of data using a transistor and capacitor pair, which together comprise a memory cell.” (Random-access Memory.) DRAM being the easier to reproduce is the predominant form of RAM used in modern computers. Both DRAM and SRAM are considered volatile, as there states are lost with the stop of power to the system. And ROM the counterpart of both RAM types is a Read Only Memory that enables and disables certain transistors permanently compared to SRAM/DRAM, as they...
