- Understanding Cache has published a comprehensive article discussing cache and its various implementations. These days, many tend to assume that cache is nothing more than an unintelligent chunk of memory connected to the CPU. In fact, cache is much more as it plays a critical role in system performance. In this article, you'll learn about the different types of cache, how and why it works, and will get a look at the L3 cache used on Intel's Pentium 4 Extreme Edition CPU


When most people hear the word "cache", they think of lottery winnings, dead presidents, and a sudden jump in the popularity of the color peach. In this context though, cache is a small chunk of memory that resides on the processor itself, giving extremely quick access to processor instructions and data. Thanks to cache, the part of the processor that actually executes the instructions doesn't even need to think about getting at this stuff, and with hard coded logic like branch-prediction and pre-fetching, data is already good to go before the processor even knows it needs it.
