Trying to do my fair share of learning about some of the more advanced components and functions on a computer.
I'm not sure this is the right place to post this.
Bleeping Computer's definition of RAM:
Random Access Memory is temporary memory used to store data and process information. The more RAM that is available to a computer, the more data the computer can store there, which can lead to faster performance.
Any information that is stored in RAM when you turn off your computer is wiped out and will not be present when you restart your computer.
If this is the case, why is RAM used instead of simply allocating space on a hard drive? Or is that possible? Thanks.
