  • DRAM is a common type of random access memory (RAM) that is used in personal computers (PCs), workstations, and servers. DDR5 is an example of DRAM. SRAM(Static RAM) offers better performance than DRAM because DRAM needs to be refreshed periodically when in use, while SRAM does not.
  • DRAM is made of bits of data or program code that are arranged in a two-dimensional grid. DRAM will store bits of data in what's called storage, or memory cell, consisting of a capacitor and a transistor.
  • What is the function of the DRAM? All RAM types, including DRAM, are volatile memory that stores bits of data in transistors. RAM is located close to a computer's processor and enables faster access to data than storage media such as hard disk drives and solid-state drives.
  • DRAM is designed with a simple technique because it only requires a single transistor compared to around six in a typical static RAM, SRAM memory cell. In view of its simplicity, It allows for great integration density levels. It is able to store massive data. It is capable to refresh and delete itself while processing. And the costs of DRAM are much lower than those for SRAM, and they are able to provide much higher levels of memory density.
  • RAM (Random-access memory) is a form of computer memory that can be read and changed in any order, typically used to store working data and machine code. DRAM is a common type of RAM random access memory that is used in personal computers (PCs), workstations, and servers.
  • DRAM is a volatile memory and retains data only as long as there is power supplied. The two dominating memory technologies in the industry today are volatile DRAM and non-volatile NAND flash.
  • DRAM frequency is the percentage of data being transferred per second on a data line. The actual measurement is about half of your RAM speed and can be adjusted up or down, depending on your PC’s needs.
  • SRAM (Static Random Access Memory) stores data in transistors and requires a constant power flow. Because of the continuous power, SRAM doesn’t need to be refreshed to remember the data being stored. SRAM is faster and typically used for cache, whereas DRAM is less expensive and has a higher density, and has a primary use as main processor memory. The advantages are low power consumption and faster access speeds. Disadvantages are fewer memory capacities and high costs of manufacturing. DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory) stores data in capacitors. Capacitors that store data in DRAM gradually discharge energy, no energy means the data has been lost. So, a periodic refresh of power is required in order to function. It is used to implement main memory. The advantages are low costs of manufacturing and greater memory capacities. Disadvantages are slow access speed and high power consumption.
  • SSD (Solid-State Drive) is a storage device that uses integrated circuit assemblies to store data persistently, typically using flash memory, and functioning as secondary storage in the hierarchy of computer storage. There are two types of SSDs: flash-based and RAM-based. Storage devices based on NAND flash technology represent the majority of SSDs used today.
  • SRAM is faster and more expensive than DRAM. so it's typically used for internal registers and the cache of a CPU. DRAM is normally used for a computer's main memory.
  • The DRAM is used to store data mapping tables on an SSD. Data mapping tables keep track of logical blocks and their physical locations in NAND. On DRAM-less SSDs, this mapping table is stored in NAND. Since NAND is slower than DRAM, DRAM-less SSDs' performance may be slower than SSDs with a DRAM cache.
  • DRAM is at least ten times slower than SRAM. SRAM is faster and typically used for cache, DRAM is less expensive and has a higher density, and has a primary use as main processor memory
  • DDR is the standard type of RAM used in all modern computers. The LPDDR (Low Power Double Data Rate Memory) may sound like a lower-powered version of the DDR standard. The LPDDR standards have been carefully designed to operate at lower voltages and to offer features tuned to the current and predicted future needs of mobile computing. Most smartphones use LPDDR4 and LPDDR4X standards, followed by LPDDR5 on flagships like Galaxy S20, OnePlus 8, iQOO 3, etc. On most phones, it'll also show the RAM frequency in MHz, besides the RAM type.
