DRAM: An Overview - DRAM: An Overview

"If you’ve been around computers for a while, you have probably had someone ask what the memory in the computer does – exactly. Maybe you artfully spoke of the RAM’s ability to access memory randomly, hence its name, Random Access Memory. Maybe you twisted in your chair and regaled the heroics of RAM inside the computer’s framework, describing in detail how it receives orders from the CPU, finds data based on rows and columns, and returns that information much faster than many other types of memory. Maybe you spoke of RAM’s volatile nature – in other words, how it doesn’t store anything with the power off. Maybe you spoke of pushing the computer’s power button to start the computer’s RAM from a clean slate. This article explains RAM and its most dominant form in today’s computers – DRAM."
