PowerShell: Getting RAM Info by manufacturer, speed, serial number and capacity

If the memory is to be upgraded, then you have to find out whether the new memory is compatible. Therefore you have to find out the type of your currently installed memory. The device manager does not provide any information about this.

Basics

The current RAM configuration can be accessed via the Windows key + Pause.
