One of the most important components on your Panasonic Toughpad UT-MA6 is your memory. RAM, also known as Random Access Memory, is where your computer temporarily stores your data so that your processor can quickly and easily retrieve it. It works something like this: When you start a program, your processor gives a command to retrieve it from the hard drive. Once retrieved from the hard drive, your system needs a workspace to store that information so that your processor can manipulate and interact with it faster and more easily. That storage component is your RAM. 

A commonly asked question is, “Does more RAM make my system run faster?” Technically no, but here’s what it does do: It makes your programs run faster. More RAM allows you to run more programs or larger programs faster because you can now store more programs and information in your RAM. If the total number of programs or data exceeds the amount of RAM capacity in your computer, your system will see a significant loss in performance. When that happens your computer doesn’t just stop running, the processor just goes back to the hard drive to retrieve the data it’s requesting and reading data from a hard drive is a much slower process than reading data from RAM. We’ve all had a computer that “bogs” down, but increasing your RAM will help eliminate that from happening.

There may be upgraded limitations depending on the operating system your computer system has. Most systems today are equipped with 64-bit operating systems that can fully utilize the installed RAM mentioned above, however, if you have a 32-bit operating system or have software that requires a 32-bit operating system, you’ll only be able to utilize approximately 3GB of RAM. If you need to upgrade your system's performance from 32-bit to 64-bit, there are several options available to you. To find out more please contact one of our technical associates for assistance.
