The basic function of computer memory is to serve as temporary or permanent storage devices for any data required by a computer to function. For computers, memory may be primary or secondary.
Primary memory often refers to devices or systems that can provide quick access to information; primary memory devices include RAM (random access memory) modules, such as desktop memory chips, notebook memory chips, and Mac memory chips. These memory chips optimize computer performance by enhancing the computer's processing capacities. The higher the memory capacity is, the more programs or applications a computer can run simultaneously.
On the other hand, secondary memory includes devices that offer slower access but higher storage capacity. Hard disk drives, flash memory, and magnetic tape drives are usually categorized as secondary memory devices. Flash memory devices are extremely popular among professionals because of their ability to provide mobile access to data.
