Cache memory working and principal
Cache memory temporarily stores information, data and programs that are mostly used by the CPU. Cache memory is a very faster memory. when any data required by CPU then CPU first search in cache memory if data is not found then cache memory bring the data from ram(main memory).
which principal followed cache memory Explanation
Now the question is Cache Memory Works on the Principle of ? let’s discuss more about cache memory principal.
Cache Memory Works on the Principle of – locality of reference
Cache memory doesn’t follow the locality of data.
What is the meaning of locality of reference ?
here is a quick overview of locality of reference the tendency of a processor to access the same set of memory locations repetitively over a short period of time(wiki)
