The Virtual RAM Concept is very simple. If the smartphone demands, it can borrow additional space from storage and allot it to RAM, to ensure a seamless performance.
In simple words, the smartphone will borrow some storage space and use it for RAM functions whenever needed.
This seems like an interesting idea for reasons. The first is obvious that you get a lag-free experience on the phone. Secondly, it allows users to get a high-RAM experience without having to spend extra for it.
How Virtual RAM Works?
If the smartphone demands, it can borrow additional space from storage and allot it to RAM so as to ensure a seamless performance.
Vivo is calling it enhanced memory management technology. It means that smartphones will borrow some storage space and use it for RAM functions.
Vivo says that their smartphones use algorithms to achieve a “+3GB” RAM effect.
Its means that the 8GB RAM variant of the phone actually ends up providing you 11GB of RAM experience while the 12GB RAM variant will give you 15GB RAM experience.
The feature is said to come in handy when there are multiple apps are running in the background. Resultant, It will also cut down the lags.
Working in Vivo X60 Series
Vivo stated on Virtual RAM, “Vivo has independently developed a brand new memory management technology.”
Instead of distributing small amounts of memory data, it uses processes as a unit to accurately identify processes that are of low importance and do not affect the user experience among those occupying a large amount of memory, and exchange these processes with external storage space, so as to greatly reduce the running memory occupied by a single app.”
The original DDR (Double Data Rate) storage space of a fixed capacity can support the running of more apps.
When you compare with the traditional memory management technology the memory usage efficiency has increased by 37 percent.
