Resource summary

ram and rom
  1. The terms "RAM" and "ROM" refer to two types of computer data storage. RAM is an acronym for "random access memory," while ROM stands for "read-only memory." RAM and ROM are alike in certain respects as two forms of memory, so they are easily confused.
    1. rom is long term memory and stays even when you turn your computer off
      1. ram is short term memory that deletes when your computer is of
        1. they both have different memory caperbilities
          1. Volatile memory is computer storage that only maintains its data while the device is powered.
            1. DRAMs are less expensive and slower than SRAMs. So they are used for the large main memory of computers and workstations. SRAM are smaller and faster but more expensive.
