1. Memory can be divided into two types: Real memory and Virtual Memory
2. Main memory is any memory that is….
3. From your knowledge of computer memory, which type of memory is required to be refreshed several times?
4. RAM stands for Random Accumulator Memory
5. Which of the following is a temporary primary memory?
7. A name or number used to identify a storage location device is ….
8. Which of the following is a primary storage device?
9. Two kinds of main memory are:
10. Compact Disk Read and Write Only Memory
11. Select the smallest memory size
12. The memory (fast) that provides access to the processor is the printer memory
13. A storage area used to store data to a compensate for the difference in speed at which the different units can handle data is…
14. Instructions and memory address are represented by
15. Virtual memory is a type of memory used in super computers
16. Fragmentation is dividing the secondary memory into equal sized fragments
17. The Bootstrap loader is always stored in the ROM (Read only memory)
18. Both DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory) and SRAM (Static Random Access Memory) are types of Random Access Memory (RAM)
19. SRAM does _________ as the transistors inside would continue to hold the data as long as the power supply is not cut off.
20. One of the advantages of SRAM is the faster speed that data can be written and read.
21. The additional circuitry and timing needed to introduce the 'refresh' creates some complications that makes DRAM memory ____________
22. Typically speaking, SRAM modules are also much _____ compared to DRAM, which makes it easier for most people to create an interface to access the memory
23. The most prominent use of SRAM is in the _________ of processors where speed is very essential, and the low power consumption translates to less heat that needs to be dissipated
24. Ultimately, cost is a factor in everything. Generally speaking, SRAM is more expensive than DRAM
25. The two main types of flash memory are named after the NAND and NOR logic gates.
26. Example applications of both types of flash memory include:
27. flash memory is _______ and offers fast read access times, although not as fast as static RAM or ROM
28. __________ is a section of volatile memory created temporarily on the storage drive. It is created when a computer is running many processes at once and RAM is running low.
29. Latency is _________ when the computer needs to use virtual memory.
30. ___________ is the process the OS uses to move data between RAM and virtual memory.
31. Using virtual memory _______________ because copying to a hard disk takes much longer than reading and writing RAM.
32. ROM contains the BIOS which is the ________ for the motherboard.
33. The BIOS contains the ___________ – the program which takes the computer through steps that lead up to the loading of the operating system (OS)
34. The computer's initial start up sequence or process is called the boot sequence (stored in ROM)
35. There are two types of ROM - PROM and EEPROM. EEPROM is popular in:
36. L2 and L3 caches are bigger than L1. They are extra caches built between the CPU and the RAM
37. L1 is usually________________ itself and is both the smallest and the fastest to access. Its size is often restricted to between 8 KB and 64 KB.
38. The following excerpt is describing the disadvantage of:
39. Suggest a solution that reduces the need for virtual memory
40. The following excerpt is describing:
41. ________memory is a small amount of very fast memory that is built into the CPU. It acts like a buffer (a temporary store) between the CPU and RAM
42. Which of the following is an example of flash memory in use:
43. Flash memory combines the permanence of ROM with the flexibility of RAM, but not the speed
44. Registers and internal cache are NOT considered main memory as they actually reside within the CPU.
45. When the CPU needs to use programs or data from the hard disk, they are first:
