Is a memory or ram is a permanent storage device?
memory, ram is primary but is volitile and is lost when power is disconnected
No, RAM is not a storage device. RAM stands for Random Access Memory. It is actually a type of primary memory. Primary memory has two types, RAM and ROM. True RAM temporarily stores data, mainly during processing, but it cannot be classified as a secondary storage device. It is in fact part of primary memory!
RAM is not permanent storage, so nothing can be saved to it. It is just working memory where you do your work until it is saved. Then it is saved to storage like a hard disk or a USB drive or other storage device.
RAM (Random Access Memory) is a storage device
Ram is used for temporary storage. Ram stands for random access memory.
yes ,ram is secondary memory.
Computer memory can be classified into temporary and permanent storage. Temporary storage is referred to as RAM and this kind of memory is lost once the computer is switched off. Permanent storage is referred to as ROM.
It can be both, but in general it is permanent storage, as opposed to data on RAM which is temporary.
Permanent storage on a hard drive Temporary storage on ram memory.
Magnetic storage: Yes magnetic tapes are permanent storage and are the best permanent storage. These are very slower storage but are very cheap storage then RAM or other kind of memory.
No, they are permanent storage devices, only RAM is volatile storage device.
RAM is a type of storage device but it is temporary memory and storage devices stores data for a long time. RAM delete data after u close the file or electricity gone off but storage devices stores data for always.
RAM stands for Random Access Memory. The word itself implies the meaning that is is of random type and it wont be permanent OS Hard Disk Drive. Rom can be as a permanent storage for the computer. The data stored in RAM doesn't stay for ever it is just the temporary storage place.
Primary memory also called main memory is normally the Random Access Memory (RAM) of the computer. It is the memory that the Central Processing Unit (CPU) can access directly. All data and program instructions are stored and retrieved by the CPU from the primary memory in small block normally from 1 to 8 bytes at a time. The CPU can not store or retrieve anything from the permanent storage locations such as hard drives, jump… Read More
memory is ram and rom ram is required for computer processing data ,ram is permanent device like hard disk ,cd etc
Normally Volatile memory or storage is the real memory in the computer. It is volatile because if the power fails or is turned off the memory (RAM) is erased or reset.
No, RAM is never permanent memory. It's the random memory that is cleared out. The OS is always stored in the actual harddrive of a device.
You can think of RAM as a temporary storage device.
Secondary Memory-: is long term storage device which uses the help of input and output channels to access information.The content in it must first be copied into the primary storage (RAM) for CPU to process . It does not lose the data when device is powered off .It is nonvolatile. Eg: Hard Disk(HD),Floppy ,CD.Its Ram-random access memory to the device 3.5 &5.7 .
Logical Structure of a computer includes: BIOS (The Basic Input Output System) CPU (The Processor) Memory / RAM (Temporary Storage) Hard Disk (Permanent Storage) Input / Output Device Communication Channel (Eg. USB) Bus (High Speed Internal Communication) Other Add-on Device…
Yes, RAM is a Primary Storage device.
Typically Storage. But it can also be called Cache, Buffer, or RAM
Random Acess Memory has 320 GB of storage. RAM is lost when you shut off the computer. RAM is a memory device in which information can be accessed in any order.
It could be used for storage. But that wouldn't make sense, since that space is dedicated to your operating systems memory... VMWare uses regular storage space as memory for all its Virtual Machines, 1 TB could equal 8 GB of Ram, and 992 GB of Storage, for example. Hope this helps.
... and a storage device, usually the Hard Disk Drive. This way you can have more "available" memory than physical memory installed on your computer.
flash memory,floppy disc,usb,pendrive,RAM,hardisk
The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is the "thinking" brain and the various forms of storage (cache, RAM, permanent storage) are the "memory", short and long term.
Dimm-ct ram is a portable memory device that you can add to any laptop computer. Adding this to your laptop will increase the memory and storage and it comes in many different sizes.
Random Access Memory (RAM) is temporary storage used by electronic devices to hold temporary information. This is used to make the device operate more efficiently, since it can be read and written to much more quickly than the computer's main drive. RAM chips hold data which is needed frequently but does not need to be saved permanently, such as session data from your web browser, anti-virus software, office programs, and operating system.
HDD (Hard Disk Drive) is Non Volatile storage device (permanent). It is also considered as Secondary storage device. Secondary storage devices are always non volatile. Primary storage devices like Ram are volatile (temporary).
Volatile memory refers to RAM that needs to be constantly refreshed to be retained. Static memory is permanent storage that is retained even after the computer is turned off.
DVD and RAM are not permanent storage devices.
The temporary memory, RAM. It is much faster than the hard disk.
hardrive nothing but it is secondary storage device,And Ram is a primary storage device
It might be called "reserved virtual memory space" or "virtual memory file", depending on the operating system.
Non Volatile RAM (NVRAM) Memory Device Read Only Memory (ROM) Memory Device Random Access Memory (RAM) Memory Device
They are both types of memory. RAM is Random Access Memory, and is used for temporary storage for programs and files. Anything in RAM is lost when the computer is powered down. ROM is Read Only memory, and is used for permanent storage of files and programs. Anything in ROM stays when the computer is powered down. Generally, RAM can be read and written multiple times, while ROM can be read multiple times but written… Read More
Storage devices are like a memory stick, iPod, floppy disk, etc. Basically anything that you can take with you and put in your pocket is a storage device. Memory is data that is stored into the computer that can be put on to a storage device. Storage devices: Hard drives, CD, DVD, BluRay disc, floppy disc, flash drive. Used to store data. Memory: RAM Used to store data which is only recognized by the computer… Read More
its not permanent memory.
Typically random access memory (RAM) is the primary storage device and the slower rotating magnetic media (disc drive) is the secondary storage device. Other devices like USB thumb drives and other removable media are considered tertiary (3rd level) storage devices
Arrays, just as normal variables, store information in RAM memory. When power is turned off, the contents of RAM memory get lost. For permanent storage, you'll have to write information to a file, or access a database.
Primary Device for storing information on the computer would be a hard drive. Temporary Storage would be RAM (Random Access Memory)
Computer memory is a form of computer data storage, which takes the form of integrated circuits. There are two types of computer memory: Random-access memory (RAM) and Read-only memory (ROM).
In most cases it is a hard drive, although many alternative now exist, including Solid State drives. Actually, it is ROM. ROM means read-only memory. However, most BIOS instructions are in nonvolatile memory these days. That means you can write to it easily like RAM, but it will retain the data until it is overwritten. There really isn't any permanent storage device in a computer these days, technically speaking. Hard drives are writable, many times… Read More
Random Access Memory (RAM) is primarily an information storage device, not an I/O (Input/Output) device. Keyboards, mice and scanners are some examples of input devices. Printers, display screens and loudspeakers are some examples of output devices.
RAM (Random Access Memory) is a temporary storage place for instructions or data that needs to be processed by the CPU and is very fast but it losses its information when you shut down your computer and is the primary memory of the PC (Personal Computer), where the hard disk is the permanent storage place for data and is also called secondary memory and it is slower than RAM but does not lose its data… Read More
Usually the term "memory" in computers is referred to RAM. RAM = Random Access Memory Memory is the only storage directly accessible to the CPU. The CPU continuously reads instructions stored there and executes them as required. Any data actively operated on is also stored there in uniform manner. The data stored in RAM is only temporary, RAM cannot hold on to information when the computer is off and so cannot hold any of your… Read More
