What does RAM mean?

RAM is an abbreviation for English Random Access Memory (RAM), in which each memory cell operates independently of the other, performing data management smoothly and quickly, resembling a “matrix” structure.

Often, users accept the hard disk drive (HDD) as the most important part of the computer. However, the most important computer component after the Processor is RAM, where no data transfer can occur. Memory types outside of RAM have extremely low speeds. For this reason, RAM modules consisting of high-speed memories are used for data processing / transfer operations. Computers experts say “RAM is the best memory to use instead of RAM.”

RAM memory modules require a certain amount of voltage (voltage) value for data processing and storage. So when the power is turned off, the data on the memory is erased. The “memory controller” that provides communication between the memory, the processor and the system is located on the Northbridge chip. The processor (CPU) accesses the memory module via the FSB (Front Side Bus) bus. The larger the FSB value, the higher the system performance.

Today, memory controller and other important controller chips are being integrated into processor implementations. In this case, problems such as delay, data loss, etc. which occur on the circuit paths during transmission will be prevented. First examples of this application are 64bit Athlon processors with built-in RAM controller.
