Hello Mi Fans,
To add another iteration in our weekly series, we the Techie Team Members of Mi Community are here! In today's TechQuest episode we are going to discuss RAM. When it's come to choosing a phone, for most of us the first thing that douches up in our mind is RAM and why not as it's the main thing behind every smartphone performance. So, why RAM has an impact on our smartphone's performance? Want answer? Let's start!
What is RAM?
Alternatively referred to as main memory, primary memory, or system memory, RAM (random-access memory) is a hardware device that allows information to be stored and retrieved on a computer. RAM is usually associated with DRAM, which is a type of memory module. Because information is accessed randomly instead of sequentially like it is on a CD or hard drive, access times are much faster. However, unlike ROM, RAM is a volatile memory and requires the power to keep the data accessible. If the computer is turned off, all data contained in RAM is lost.
In a nutshell, it’s an extremely fast type of computer memory that temporarily stores all the information your PC needs right now and in the near future. It’s where your computer loads up all the things it thinks it will need to find out soon so that when it does need something, it can read it super fast. It’s quite different from your system’s storage, like its hard drive, where information is stored long term.
Why it matters?
RAM is very important in that your desktop needs it to run and tablets or smartphones without much of it tend to run very slowly indeed. However, will have tons of it or the highest MHz rating means your system is super fast? Not necessarily. Having enough RAM matters and having RAM that isn’t bargain-basement slow is a good idea, especially if you plan on doing complicated image or video editing tasks, or playing games that tend to be CPU limited. However, when it comes to improving your system’s overall performance, it’s important to weigh up the costs involved. A faster CPU or graphics card is almost always going to have a bigger impact on your systems’ overall speed than faster memory.
You all have changed phones over time, and have used smartphones with low RAM to higher RAM.
Now it's time to unveil today's TechQuest:
List out the phones you have changed in the past 10 years, their RAM sizes and the reason why you changed?
