Myths - You can download RAM

February 2017




Myth

  • I can download the RAM via a website
  • I came across a site that offers me to download the RAM, for my computer.
  • I think it's possible.

Reality


Download RAM is technically impossible.

Reasons

  • There may be software that can simulate RAM, a bit like the operation of SWAP (virtual memory) on Windows.
  • We must differentiate two things on a computer: hardware and software.
  • However, there is no need to purchase and download a software to manage SWAP, when you could have done easily and without any cost, byyourself.
  • On the other hand, RAM is a hardware piece, so how could you achieve the download of a physical items over a virtual medium.
