RAM (Random Access Memory)
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer memory that provides temporary storage for data and instructions that are actively being used by a computer's processor. It is a key component of a computer's overall memory system and plays a crucial role in determining system performance.
DDR SDRAM and its subsequent generations (DDR2, DDR3, DDR4, DDR5) are the most common types found in modern computer systems. The specific type of RAM supported by a computer depends on the motherboard's specifications and its compatibility with the processor.
