(Random Access Memory) The main memory in a computer, smartphone or tablet. RAM is the temporary workspace where instructions are executed and data are processed. What makes RAM "random access" is its capability of reading and writing any single byte. This "byte addressability" differs from storage devices such as hard drives and solid state drives (SSDs) that read and write many bytes (sectors or pages) at one time. In addition, RAM is used as a temporary space for the software, while storage is permanent until deleted by the user. To learn how RAM is used, look at the memory examples in computer. Also see memory, memory module and future memory chips.RAM Is Mostly DRAMThe most common type of RAM is dynamic RAM (DRAM). When a computer data sheet states 8GB of memory or 8GB RAM, it refers to DRAM (see dynamic RAM). Higher-speed SRAM is also used as an internal staging area (see static RAM).Memory Is Often Not RAM!A smartphone or tablet's specification of 16, 32, 64 or 128GB of memory does not refer to RAM; rather it is the unit's flash memory capacity for storing apps and data. The amount of internal RAM in a mobile device (typically 2GB to 6GB) is published on a tech specs Web page (see storage vs. memory).

Semiconductor-based computer memory that stores program code and data in locations that can be accessed in any order. As the primary working memory of a computer, RAM stores program code and data that can be accessed, read, and written to by the central processing unit (CPU) and other hardware devices. RAM is characterized as read/write memory to distinguish it from ROM (Read Only Memory), which is the primary storage memory. RAM is volatile, meaning that any data stored in RAM is lost and unrecoverable if power is lost. Many programs set aside some amount of RAM as a temporary workspace for data until it can be printed, transmitted, or stored on a hard drive, floppy disk, or other permanent or semi-permanent medium. See also ROM.
