What is 32-bit: 32-bit tells us that the number of bits that can be processed or transmitted. In another way, you can say that the number of bits that can be used for the single element in a data format.
32-bit is a type of CPU (Central Processing Unit) architecture that can transfer 32 bits of data per clock cycle or you can say that it is the amount of information that the CPU can process every time it performs an operation.

Primary memory is also known as main memory or may also refer to "Internal memory." and primary storage. All those types of computer memories that are directly accessed by the processor using data bus are called primary memory. That allows a processor to access stores running programs and currently processed data that stored in a memory location.

Secondary memory is also known as secondary storage. The secondary memory is accessed indirectly via input/output operations. This memory is also called permanent, external, stable or persistent memory. It is characterised by its slowness and cheapness, relative to the RAM, and by its permanent appearance.

Memory is an essential component of the computer. It is a hardware device that assembled on the motherboard for storing data and instructions for performing a task on the system. Two types of memory are used by the computer, one for storing data permanently and second for operating.

Definition: SDRAM stands for Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory. SDRAM operates more efficiently as it works according to the synchronization of the clock. This makes it easy to manage faster, and the speed of the SDRAM measured in MHz instead of nanoseconds. SDRAM introduced in 1969-70. It most widely used in computers. Nowadays it is also used in other systems.

Definition: NVRAM stands for Non-Volatile Random Access Memory. It is a kind of RAM that can store the data even when there is no power. Ex:- Flash memory is a kind of NVRAM.

Definition: EEPROM (pronounce as "E-E-PROM") stands for Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory. It is a non-volatile ROM chip which used for storing a small amount of data in computers or some other electronic devices. Through EEPROM, an individual byte of data can erase and reprogrammed entirety, not selectively by the electrical voltage.

Definition: ECC Memory stands for Error-Correcting Code Memory is a type of RAM that adds error detection and correction circuitry to automatically detect and correct single-bit memory errors in any of the chip. As the name of the memory suggests, ECC memory is a kind of memory that can identify and fix the most common data error, but it used for single-bit memory errors.

Definition: EPROM (pronounced ee-prom ) stands for Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory. EPROM is a type of ROM chip that can retain the data even if there is no power supply. The data can be erased and reprogrammed by using ultraviolet (UV) light. The UV light clears the data on the chip so that it can reprogram. For writing and erasing data on the EPROM, we need a particular device which is known as PROM programmer. The process of programming an EPROM is often called BURNING, and the box into which it is plugged to program it an EPROM burner.

Definition: VRAM (pronounced "vee ram") stands for video random access memory or video RAM. It is a particular type of memory used on some video adapters to speed up the display of images on the screen. VRAM costs more than regular RAM (DRAM, dynamic RAM), but it does make the screen snappier. VRAM is the random access memory which is used to store the image and video data which is being displayed by the computer, or you can say that it will serve as a buffer between the CPU (Central Processing Unit) and video card.
