Static RAM (SRAM)
- SRAM uses on-chip memory to store data, which makes it very fast.
- It is used in the CPU Cache memory because of its speed.
- It costs more compared to DRAM
- It has a lower storage density (amount stored per area)
Dynamic Ram (DRAM)
- DRAM uses off-chip memory to store data, which means it is fast, but not as fast as SRAM
- It is used in the main memory
- It costs less compared to SRAM
- It has a higher storage density compared to SRAM
A great video that explores the differences between SRAM and DRAM
