RAM is soild state - no moving parts, so it is by design faster.

HDDs faster than RAM ??? YES sort off.   You can buy "solid state" HDDs now, mainly for mainframes, but are availiable for Server/PCs - but are mega big bucks.

The solid state HDD is really, a collection of RAM chips, put together to act like one big drive, you connect them as you would a normal HDD.

SO YES there are possible cases where itit different.
