Most of us would have heard of the term RAM storage. You will usually see this word pop up in case of computers, laptops, tablets, and even smartphones. But what exactly is RAM?

RAM (Random Access Memory) is the type of memory that is used to store information for the short term. Whenever you reboot your computer, the RAM is automatically cleared. When you have more RAM, your computer can perform equally more tasks in parallel as it can now store relevant information for more processes at a single time.

Earlier, RAM was modular in the sense that you were in a position to add RAM to your Desktop or even your Laptop thanks to RAM slots on the motherboard. However, these days, with devices, in general, getting slimmer, the RAM is now directly soldered into the Motherboard, meaning you cannot upgrade the RAM on your device in most cases.
