The internal memory of a computer is also reffered to as main memory, global memory, main storage, or primary storage. Do not confuse it with secondary or auxiliary memory also called mass storage provided by various peripheral devices.
The storage capacity of memory is shown below 8 bits 1024 Bytes 1024 KB 1024MB 1024GB
1Byte 1 Kilo Byte KB 1 Mega Byte MB 1 Giga Byte GB 1 Tera Byte TB
MAINLY THERE ARE 2 TYPES OF MEMORIES 1 PRIMARY MEMORY 2 SECONDARY MEMORY
PRIMARY MEMORY Primary Memory is the only one directly accessible to the CPU. The CPU continuously reads instructions stored there and executes them as required. Any data actively operated. It is also stored there in uniform manner.
Random Access Memory RAM Read Only Memory ROM .
