Random access memory (RAM) has long been considered a low-profile computing technology, lacking the impact of wireless networking and other hot areas of development. RAM's profile dropped even lower after the memory market fell into a severe slump several years ago and vendors started leaving the industry. However, as microprocessors have become much more powerful, RAM has become important again as a data bottleneck that is holding back PC and laptop performance gains. In response, vendors are developing more powerful RAM technologies. This has not only improved computer performance, it has also yielded considerable competition in the RAM marketplace and some important changes in the industry. As this has occurred, the cost per megabit of RAM has continued to fall. Thus, while the RAM market is still hurting because of low product prices, the technology is generating more interest
