Virtual Memory Explained - FrostyTech.com Virtual Memory Explained
Mon Nov 27, 2000 | 4:42P| PermaLink
Buying RAM sucks. Why buy more RAM when you can buy a faster hard drive or a new video card right? Too often it seems gamers are left with less and less RAM required to play games. Today at G3D:Gaming In 3D, they've written up a quick guide explaining how Virtual Memory works and how you can benenfit from it. Check it out! "However the alternative is worse. Say you disable virtual memory, and you ran an application that requires more than 128mb. When the program starts to look for a memory spot higher than what you have, it will simply crash with an Out of Memory message. But, with virtual memory enabled, it'll start swapping. Swapping, as its name states, is the process where some memory is transferred on the hard drive to allow space for other tasks to take place, and these pieces of information are "swapped". While it's not as fast as allowing the program complete access to physical memory, it'll still run."
