  • The most common computer memory types are RAM. , commonly referred to as RAM, is the cheapest way to improve the efficiency of your computer. It is volatile memory; that is, what’s held in RAM is only held there as long as the computer is on. If the data isn’t moved to the hard drive before the computer is turned off, the data stored in RAM is flushed away. RAM also plays a huge part in the number of programs a computer can run simultaneously. If you’ve ever wondered why your computer may buckle under the pressure if 5 or 6 memory-demanding programs run at the same time, it’s probably because it doesn’t have enough RAM capacity to support them all.

    There are different computer memory types of RAM, and RAM itself has changed over the years. In more recent years, SDRAM (Synchronous RAM) is some of the oldest RAM you can currently find. You’ll find this type of RAM in computers at least 15 years old or more. It is very slow, maxing out at 133 MHz.

A third type of computer memory is cache. There are two types of cache. Primary cache, or level 1 cache, is built right into the () and ensures instant availability of data that the CPU frequently needs. Secondary cache, or level 2 cache, is usually built on a memory chip, is located very close to the CPU, and has a direct connection to the CPU through a dedicated circuit. Secondary cache is bigger in capacity than primary cache. Cache basically speeds up the rate at which data moves from the main memory to the CPU.
