What is computer RAM memory?

Memory is the most important factor in computer performance.

Memory or RAM stands for Random Access Memory. As the computer functions, the processor transfers data from the computerís hard drive to the computerís memory for immediate use. Memory provides space for a computer to temporarily store, read and write information for quick access by the computerís processor. Memory is ďrandom accessĒ meaning any storage location can be accessed directly, which makes it faster than accessing information from the hard drive.

Having more RAM in your computer reduces the number of times the processor has to retrieve data from the hard drive, which in turn substantially increases computer performance

What are the different types of memory?

DDR3 RAM or Double Data Rate Three Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory is the latest random access memory interface used in computers and other electronic devices.
DDR2 RAM (Stands for "Double Data Rate 2.") is an improved version of DDR memory (DDR RAM) that is faster and more efficient.
DDR RAM memory, sometimes referred to as DDR SDRAM, stands for Double-Data-Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory.
RDRAM stands for "Rambus Dynamic Random Access Memory" is extremely fast and uses a narrow, high-bandwidth "channel" to transmit data at speeds much faster than SDRAM.
SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic Random-Access Memory) is what most computers were equipped with from 1996-2002. Its speed rating is given in MHz to easily compare it to system board bus speeds.

Why should I upgrade my computerís RAM memory?

Upgrading your computer's RAM memory is the quickest, most efficient and least expensive way to boost a computerís performance. Many new computers come with only a minimum amount of memory and adding more will significantly increase a systemís speed, responsiveness and performance. Memory upgrades are particularly helpful for users who work with large files, have more than one program open at once, or use memory-intensive applications such as games, graphics and video editing software.

What is the Difference Between Memory (RAM), Hard Drive, and Flash Memory?

Two of the most frequently confused computer terms are memory and hard drive space. A hard drive is a mechanical box that contains a spinning metal disk similar to a CD and a moving read-write arm that slides across the spinning disk and either reads data from or writes data to the disk. Whenever a user installs an application on their computer the application is written to the hard drive permanently so that application can be used whenever it is needed. Likewise, when a user saves a document or a project on their computer, this data is also written to the hard drive.

RAM takes the form of removable computer chips that don't have any moving parts and temporarily store data on small circuit boards. RAM is temporary data storage because unlike hard drives, the data is only stored while the computer is up and running.

flash storage Flash memory, flash drive or flash storage is like a hard drive in that it permanently stores data but it is also like RAM in that it has no moving parts and stores data on a circuit board. Flash storage data can be accessed faster and is less prone to errors than hard drives, but its primary limitation has been its relatively small data capacity. There <!--are several types of Flash Memory: CompactFlash, Memory Sticks, SDHC, Secure Digital. cards. You would need card readers to be able to read these flash cards.

How much RAM memory do I need?

Memory upgrades are the most important factor in computer performance. If your computer doesnít have enough memory, the processor needs to continually go to the hard drive to rewrite the old information with the new information being used. This significantly slows down the computer's response time. Some programs or applications will not run correctly if the computer you are using does not have enough memory. The amount of memory your computer needs varies depending the operating system installed.

The minimum recommended amount of memory for Windows 98, Me, and 2000 is 128MB or more.

Windows XP needs at least 256MB of RAM to function. With more applications and programs installed, a system running on 256MB of RAM quickly becomes sluggish and unresponsive. Microsoft recommends a minimum of 512MB for Windows XP. If your computer is experiencing lag when running more than one application at a time and takes an excessive amount of time starting up, you may want to consider adding more RAM. 768MB to 1GB is a good amount to have for an average computer user. If you do computer design, 3-D animation or heavy data processing with accounting programs, or if you are a serious gamer, then you will most likely need more RAM.

Vista needs 512MB RAM to function; however, Microsoft recommends that Vista computers ship with at least 1GB of memory. Due to the intensive memory requirements of Vista, systems running on 1GB of RAM may still see sluggish performance. 2GB is the recommended amount of memory for Vista to run smoothly for the average computer user. Serious gamers and performance minded users should consider upgrading to 4GB.

For Windows 7 Microsoft recommends a minimum of 1 GB of RAM for 32-bit versions of the operating system and a minimum of 2 GB for 64-bit versions. If you plan on taking advantage of the Windows XP Mode feature, you should bump those requirements up to include an additional 1 GB of RAM.

What is an IDE Flash Module(DOM)?

IDE Flash Modules are specially designed for use in the demanding industrial environments where industrial PCs, Set-Top Boxes and other computer systems must operate. IDE Flash Modules are a convenient and easy to use solution for expanding an industrial computer's memory capacity. Flash Disk Module (FDMs) provide non-volatile storage in a compact design, making a perfect fit for embedded applications. This FDM model mounts vertically and is available with either a 40- or 44-pin IDE interace. While typical spinning hard disk drives are the weakest point when it comes to withstanding extremes, FDM's are an asset and ideal to use in severe environments. Other benefits of FDMs are that they are rugged, lightweight, silent, and
have low power consumption.
