Why Learning How To Locate The Amount Of RAM On A Windows 10 Device (2020) Is Important:
WARNING! Not All Computers And Devices Can Upgrade The Random Access Memory (RAM). It Is Very Common For Companies To Solder The RAM To The Motherboard. You Need To Check With The Device Manufacturer Or Google To Ensure The Old RAM Can Be Removed And Replaced.
What Is Random Access Memory (RAM)?
Random Access Memory (RAM) integrates into nearly every computer or processor-based device. RAM is one of the three most essential components of any computer system. Random Access Memory is a non-volatile memory that temporarily stores information waiting to be processed. Whenever you send a request to your computer, that information first sits in the RAM while the processor runs through it.
Often the processed information is passed back into the memory for further processing. Think of memory as the highway in which information flows freely between the various components of a computer or device. If you don’t have enough memory, it results in traffic jams, which can slow things down. Sometimes memory is too slow; this is like having a reduced speed limit on your highway. In the computer world, we called these issues bottlenecks.
What Are The Most Common Windows 10 Performance Bottlenecks?
Generally speaking, historically the bottleneck was either in the processor, the memory, or the hard drive. It just got more complicated with the implementation of graphics cards. Technically modern-day graphics cards are self-contained computers. Each graphics card has a processor, also known as a GPU or graphical processor unit. Graphics cards also have RAM, and this memory is specialized for the heavy loads perform in gaming. Dedicated GPU and RAM were great additions by graphics card developers because it isolated all of the graphics power to a separate device.
Unfortunately, you cannot upgrade graphics card memory as card manufacturers solder it to the board. Sometimes this is true for computers as well; it just depends on the manufacturer. Manufacturers love to solder memory to the motherboard so that you can’t upgrade it on your own. This guide is going to walk you through determining if you can purchase memory upgrades for your computer. I always recommend at least 16 GB of memory on Microsoft Windows 10. If you do not have this much memory, you should probably upgrade to it. Ideally, you should have 32 gigabytes of memory. Most people do not fully utilize 32GB unless they do memory-intensive tasks such as video editing or graphics work.
