Hello! RAM memory is an essential device for the performance of any computer. Indeed, Random Access Memory influences the performance of any operating system. It is well known that its main mission is to store data temporarily. Which are generated while we are currently working. In addition, a critical function is to store and execute the instructions generated by the CPU. For this reason, it is very important that the RAM memory has the necessary speed to fulfill its task efficiently. Stay with us to find out how to know the RAM memory frequency in Windows 10.
Types of RAM
There are different types of RAM:
- SRAM Memory
- DRAM Memory
- VRAM Memory
- ROM memory
- EPROM memory
Certainly each has its role. Additionally, they are installed in different slots (DDR1, DDR2, DDR3 or DDR4). However, an essential piece of information is the frequency or speed expressed in MHZ.
How to know the RAM memory frequency with Task Manager in Windows 10
The first thing you need to know is that there are several factors that influence RAM speed. Let’s look at some of them:
- The assigned frequency
- Total number of channels
- Dual data rate (DDR)
- Processor speed.
Well, let’s see how to use the task manager to determine this value. Accordingly, press the Control+Shift+Esc combination to open it. Next, click the Performance tab and then Memory.
How to know the RAM frequency with CMD
The system symbol allows you to perform administrative tasks. You can also access detailed information about the system. For this purpose, we will use a command called wmic (Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line). This command pursues the administration of automatic and scripted tasks. Additionally, it allows displaying hardware-specific information. The first thing we have to do is launch a CMD as administrators from the start menu.
Once there, just run the following command:
wmic MemoryChip get BankLabel, Capacity, MemoryType, TypeDetail, Speed, Manufacturer
We see many details of the RAM. However, look at the Speed value to determine the frequency speed. Additionally, to check only this value, then we will use this command:
wmic MemoryChip get Capacity, Speed
How to know the RAM memory frequency with PowerShell
This task can also be done from PowerShell. So please execute the following command:
Get-WmiObject win32_physicalmemory | Format-Table Manufacturer,MemoryType,Banklabel,Configuredclockspeed,Devicelocator,Capacity,Serialnumber -autosize
Please note that to launch a PowerShell you only have to press the Win+X combination. And then select the corresponding option.
Okay, so we have seen several ways to know the RAM frequency in Windows 10. This allows knowing more about the hardware status of the computer. See you soon!
