Random-access memory, or RAM, is one of the most important components in all devices, from PCs, to smartphones, to games consoles. Without RAM, doing just about anything on any system would be much, much slower. Not having enough for the application or game you’re trying to run can bring things to a crawl or even prevent them from running at all. But what is RAM exactly? In a nutshell, it’s an extremely fast component that temporarily stores all the information your PC needs right now and in the near future. RAM is essentially your device’s short-term memory. It temporarily stores (remembers) everything that runs on your PC, like all the services in Windows, your web browser, your image editing tool, or the game you’re playing. You don’t want the CPU digging through your slower storage, like a hard drive or even a solid-state drive (SSD), every time you request a new browser tab or load a new enemy to shoot. As fast as storage is compared to drives of years gone by, they’re still far slower than RAM. Accessing that information in RAM is insanely fast, unlike slower hard drives which provide longer-term storage.
