RAM is an acronym for Random Access Memory. It is a volatile storage memory present in every PCs and Laptops. Without the RAM, the computer system can't boot. It is a temporary storage unit where the microprocessor stores instructions and operations being executed. Unlike the hard disk drive, they RAM can only store information when the system is on but as soon as you shut down, it loses every information in it. For your system to run faster and open more programs, you need a larger RAM size. The processor works hand in hand with the RAM, if the RAM size it low, it will affect the speed. The higher the RAM size, the faster the system will perform.
Before buying a particular RAM, you need to know which type your motherboard supports. There are basically different type of RAM but the most common types are SRAM and DRAM. SRAM is an acronym for Static Random Access Memory and DRAM stands for Dynamic Random Access Memory. The SRAM are more expensive than the DRAM and are majorly used as cache in most system. The DRAM is divided into different sub-types which are SDRAM, DDR, DDR2, and DDR3.
DDR: This stands for Double Date Rate. It process information data and information on both the rising and falling edges of a clock cycle, which doubles the data throughput. DDR SDRAM chips are mounted on 184-pin DIMM modules and are typically available in 128 Mb to 1 GB capacity. It has a bus speed of up to 400MHz.
DDR 2: It has two times the latency of DDR and is two times faster than the DDR. It is mounted on 240-pin DIMM modules, can operate at higher bus speeds and have a capacity to hold 256 Mb to 2 GB of memory. DDR 3: It is a type of synchronous dynamic random-access memory with a high bandwidth (double data rate) interface. It is faster than both the DDR2 and DDR. Also, it is neither forward nor backward compatible with any of the DDR2 or DDR.
Whether you own a laptop or desktop computer, you can always get RAM on Jumia. If you are not okay with the current speed and operation of your system, you can opt for more RAM online in order to increase the speed and functionality of your system. Before you purchase any from our top sellers, make sure you read the product description so as to be familiar with the type of RAM and also know which your system requires. RAM sizes varies from 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB. Also make sure you go through your manufacturer's manual in order to know the maximum RAM size your PC or laptop can support.
