RAM chips act as a intermediaries between a hard drive and a computer's processor. Hard drives take a significant amount of time to access data because they must spin in order to transmit data that is located on a disk called a platter. Since RAM does not have moving parts, it can transfer data much faster than a hard drive. RAM stores data necessary for whatever programs and processes are running on a computer and stores new data from the hard drive as necessary for fast transferal to the processor, while deleting, or "forgetting" data that is no longer needed
