Random Access Memory (RAM)

What is RAM? 

RAM, short for Random Access Memory, is a crucial component that greatly impacts the performance of your computer. It serves as temporary storage for data that your device and applications need to access quickly. The amount of RAM available directly influences the speed and responsiveness of your device. If your system has insufficient RAM, you may experience delays when executing commands or using applications.

What does RAM do? 

RAM plays a pivotal role in various day-to-day operations, including loading applications, browsing the internet, and working on Nebo notes. It also enables smooth interaction between different applications and allows you to switch seamlessly between them.

When it comes to RAM usage, it's important to note that it is constantly in use by your device. If your device or an app is running slowly or becoming unresponsive, it could be due to the RAM struggling to handle the multiple operations being performed. Having more RAM enables your device to handle tasks more efficiently and allows applications to interact with each other seamlessly.

What uses RAM? 

RAM is particularly utilized when you have multiple apps open, run resource-intensive processes, or access large files simultaneously. Complex programs like games, design software, and text recognition and conversion tools such as Nebo tend to utilize a significant amount of RAM as they constantly process data.

To improve speed and reduce latency, consider implementing the following tips:

  1. Keep your device's operating system up to date to benefit from performance improvements and bug fixes.
  2. Close any unnecessary apps or browser tabs that are not actively being used.
  3. Avoid creating excessively long or data-heavy notes in Nebo, such as those with numerous imported images, extensive sketches, complex math or diagram objects, or long columns of text.
  4. If you have very long or data-heavy notes, consider dividing them into shorter ones using the duplicate feature.

By following these suggestions, you can optimize the performance of your device by managing its RAM usage effectively.
