Virtual memory is used to supplement RAM memory when needed. RAM memory is much faster than virtual memory. For example, when you have two same PCs, but one is having 8 GB of RAM and the second one is having 4 GB of RAM and uses 4 GB of virtual memory, the PC with 8 GB RAM can provide better performance.

RAM is used for a high speed data transfers. It has much higher speed when reading or writing data than HDD or SSD.
