Have you ever wondered what the term Cache means? Join Brad as we explain the ins and outs of the term and how it can help or hurt you in your computer.
It's surprising that one of the most important aspects of performance in today's computers is the least understood. Cache rests at the very top of the memory hierarchy pyramid and all data that the processor uses must pass through it. Without a well designed cache, a high dollar computer filled with the latest and greatest hardware will run slower than a three legged cow. Maybe one of the reasons why this topic is so little understood is due to its complexity.
