A RAM, or random access memory, is a type of computing memory that can be accessed randomly, meaning any unit of data can be returned constantly regardless of its physical location. This is in contrast to other types of computing memory, such as hard drives or CDs, which have a linear data layout and require longer access times for data that is not physically located near the beginning of the storage device. RAM stores data that the computer’s processor needs to be quickly accessible, such as system code and application data. RAM is considered a volatile type of memory, meaning it loses its data when the power is turned off. However, non-volatile RAM (NVRAM) devices retain their data even when power is removed.
