Most of the time people are getting confused on what the processor and RAM really do. What is more Important. Today we will discuss about this topic.
First we will discuss what RAM actually does in Smartphones or Computers. RAM is the place where running programs are stored. RAM (Random-Access Memory) is the memory used to store open programs (apps) so that it can be easily accessed by the processor. For example, a user launched the Gallery and then after a while he hit the home button and proceed to Another Game. The Gallery, which was still running was stored in the RAM. That way, when the user decides to go back to what he was doing, he will be able to continue his activity without needing to restart the app. In short, it is needed in running heavy apps and multitasking. So in this case he is able to launch the app soon because it was already running in the background. If you have more RAM then you can do multitasking in a better way.
The processor is the one processing the inputs received by the computer or smartphone. From a technical point of view, the RAM itself doesn’t have anything to influence the performance of the processor. Meaning, the RAM cannot boost the processing speed of the processor but it has something to do on how fast the overall performance will be. Why? Because it’s the place where running programs are stored. RAM (Random-Access Memory) is the memory used to store open programs (apps) so that it can be easily accessed by the processor. In short, it is needed in running heavy apps and multitasking.
The processor is the one processing the inputs received by the smartphone. If the device has a 1GHz processor, then it might be fast enough but if it will be accompanied with a low RAM and you’ll use it for heavy multitasking or a resource hog game or app, then the “lag” kicks in. The process is slowed down because when the RAM is full, the rendering starts to suffer. That’s the time when that you’ll notice the slowness of an app.
Basically, the processor is the engine that works its way and it utilizes the resources it has. Thus, the amount of RAM directly affects the performance of a device. On the other hand, a slow processor with a huge 2GB of RAM will also not work out just right. It should be a sweet combination of the two.
So Higher RAM will help you to run multiple apps together. Higher processing speed gives you FASTER results.
Thus, as the question asks, one cannot determine what is more important, processor or RAM. Both are important and It is better if they are in a good proportion.
