Hey RAM why u so RAMDOM?

😡

I mean RANDON!

😤

RANDOM

😌

What do you think???

𝗔. Because data stored on it is all over the place

𝗕. Because sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t

𝗖. Because the CPU can access any location in RAM to get data it needs

It’s c -> because the CPU can access any location in RAM to get data it needs

Earlier technologies like magnetic tape 🧲📼 required that the CPU starts from the beginning of the tape and go through it till it gets to the data it needs

If the data it needed was at the end, then that meant a lot of time was wasted!

With RAM, the CPU can directly access any location and do so very quickly

Image

It can randomly go anywhere in RAM!

Random Access is probably not a great name! 🤮

It should have been something like DAM (Direct Access Memory) 🙃


B I T S BY got to go 🚀
