RAM (Random Access Memory) Chips

RAM (Random Access Memory) is the main memory of a computer. It is the hardware in a computing device where the operating system, application programs, services, and data in current or running in the background use are kept so they can be quickly accessed by the device’s processor.

Random Access Memory is much faster to read from and write to than other kinds of storage. RAM is volatile. That means data is retained in RAM as long as the computer is on, but it is lost when the computer is turned off.
