RAM AND ROM
1 RAM stand for: Random Access memory
2 This means you can access your stuff without touching bytes
3 ROM stands for: Read Only Memory
4 This means that is a type of storage medium that permanently stores data on personal computers
5 There is one major difference between a ROM and a RAM chip. A ROM chip is non-volatile storage and does not require a constant source of power to retain information stored on it. When power is lost or turned off, a ROM chip will keep the information stored on it. In contrast, a RAM chip is volatile and requires a constant source of power to retain information. When power is lost or turned off, a RAM chip will lose the information stored on it.
6 Volatile memory is computer storage that only maintains its data while the device is powered
7 A type of physical memory used in most personal computers. The term dynamic indicates that the memory must be constantly refreshed (reenergized) or it will lose its contents. RAM (random-access memory) is sometimes referred to as DRAM (pronounced dee-ram) to distinguish it from static RAM (SRAM).
