RAM (Random access memory) affects the speed and performance of a system if it is not chosen perfectly in a negative way. Therefore, it is important to have the right RAM in your computer system. Whenever a computer runs a program, the microprocessor loads the executable file from the program that is running into the RAM of the computer.
Some programs need to store a large amount of data that can be loaded on RAM with ease. If the computer does not have enough RAM in your system then higher are the chances that your system will run slowly.
What is the extended data output RAM?
Extended data output RAM is a kind of RAM that improves the time to read from memory while enhancing the processing speed of the microprocessor. So, to make your computer perform better and to make it faster, extended data output RAM is used.
If you have done almost everything to make your system run fast but nothing is working properly then it is time to upgrade the RAM of the system. Yes, upgrading the RAM of the system can increase the speed and performance of the system in no time.
Add more RAM to your system
When it comes to improving the performance of the system, the very first thing you have to check is the RAM of the system. The machines that are running Windows 95 or 98, increasing their RAM up to 64 MB can increase its performance significantly. While it does not mean that 64MB will work everywhere and it can’t increase the performance and speed of all the systems.
Like when we talk about the systems with the operating system Windows 2000 or Windows NT then there is no upper limit and you can use extended data output RAM to enhance the performance of the speed.
Adding RAM to a desktop computer is easier than adding it to a laptop. The desktops with towers are easier to open so that RAM can be inserted inside it while on the other hand, laptop computers do not have much space and it is not feasible to add RAM to the motherboard of the laptop because of their smaller size. Prebuilt computers may have warranties, therefore, it is recommended you do not replace the hardware part of these computers else they might go out of the warranty.
Change the type of RAM
The type of RAM you are using in your computer also affects its speed. If fast mode RAM has been installed in your computer system then check whether it is feasible to upgrade it with extended data output RAM or not. If your system’s motherboard is compatible with the high-speed memory system then it is a good way to upgrade the memory to fasten the speed of the computer system. If you don’t want to change the type of the memory, it is also a good option to upgrade the module of it. It will provide you a boost in the system’s performance up to a significant level. So, don’t worry if you do not want to change the type of memory, just enhance the memory it contains.
The purpose of the RAM
RAM is the “brain” of the computer system. Generally, there are two types of RAMs are available named as long term and short term memory. A hard drive is the long term memory that stores the data permanently into the system while on the other hand, RAM is used to store the data while a program is running into system. It is used to store temporary data. Like in case, if you want to run multiple files in your computer system simultaneously then RAM is used to store the temporary data of all these programs so they can run simultaneously in a computer system.
A numerical value of RAM represents its quantity, the more it counts, the more the memory is, the more it is capable to store more items. Apart from RAM, there is also some other hardware that reduces the speed of the system like a graphic processing unit.
So, at last, if you want to enhance the speed and performance of your system, consider upgrading its RAM.
