RAM (Randcom Access Memory) 
 

The RAM is the working memory of computers and it is the part of the computer where the operating system components, computer programs and other widely used data are stored so that they can be accessed quickly.

In general, the more RAM your computer has, the faster and more efficiently it runs. Therefore, if you want to get the most out of your computer, you should make sure that a certain amount of RAM is built into it. Especially if the computer is used for demanding tasks or applications. For example, gaming computers or image editors will need a lot of RAM to get the most out of the computer.

However, it is not just the amount of RAM that determines how well the computer will work. The speed used is also crucial to the efficiency of the computer. The clock rate, also known as speed, plays an important role in the speed at which the computer runs.

Both the amount of RAM and the clock rate must be adjusted. A high amount of RAM with a low clock rate does not help the computer. The same is true if the computer has a high clock rate without the amount of RAM included.

At DCC, you will find a wide selection of RAM from leading components such as Lenovo, HP, IBM, and others.

SO-DIMM vs. DIMM RAM

In short, SO-DIMM memory for laptops and DIMM memory for desktops. However, there are some exceptions, for example NUC computers using SO-DIMM.

DDR MEMORY

New memory modules are constantly being developed, and unfortunately they are not backwards compatible. The newest type of memory is DDR4. However, many computers still use the old DDR3 memory.

ECC RAM

ECC stands for Error Correcting Code. Memory with this technology is more stable than memory without it. The reason for this is, as the name suggests, that it finds and repairs even the smallest errors that may occur.

The disadvantage of using memory with ECC is that it works a little slower, as the functionality always requires troubleshooting and optimization. However, studies show that in practice it is only a few parts of one percent and up to 1-2 percent in extreme cases. In addition, not all processors support this type of memory. So make sure before you buy anything. For the time being, only the best processors, for example, powerful workstations that support ECC memory.

As a general rule, due to the stability advantages of ECC memory, servers always use ECC memory.
