Computer Memory Types
When someone’s asking about computer memory types, it can usually mean two things. They are either trying to find out more about the different types of memory that are being used by their computer, or they are trying to identify the specific type of random access memory (RAM) that their computer configuration needs, in order to upgrade it.
If you need to know the latter, you should be pleased to know that there is no need for you to open your computer and actually remove the memory in order to be able to identify it. Not only are there software tools that will do that for you, but you might not even need to install anything on your pc. You can do it online, and 4allmemory.com will help you with the diagnosis.
On the other hand, if you are wondering what types of memory there are, the answer becomes a little more elaborate. There is the Random Access Memory (RAM), the Cache memory, the virtual memory, and the computer’s hard drive. And if we think about it, we can add flash memory to the list, as well. Each of these computer memory types performs a certain function, has some specific characteristics, and they are not interchangeable.
