In computer science, a cache (pronounced /kæʃ/, kash) is a collection of data duplicating original values stored elsewhere or computed earlier, where the original data is expensive to fetch (owing to longer access time) or to compute, compared to the cost of reading the cache. In other words, a cache operates as a temporary storage area where frequently accessed data can be stored for rapid access. Once the data is stored in the cache, it can be used in the future by accessing the cached copy rather than re-fetching or recomputing the original data. ( Source Wikipedia )

There are different type of cache memory: processor cache memory, cache memory ram,1 cache memory l2, cache memory, CPU cache memory, disk cache memory, hard disk cache, cache memory motherboard.

if you mean processor then cache memory if you mean computer then ROM

In this instance, you likely mean cache memory, though you could mean RAM, particularly DRAM. Cache memory, like the L1, L2, and L3 processor cache, helps to speed up operations between the CPU and RAM.

If you mean geocaching (, then cachebits are signature items left by finders of the cache. Go to to see pictures of examples.

The CPU can access the Level 1 cache (L1 cache) faster, but the L1 cache is smaller than the L2 cache.

When a geocache has a line through it like this: geocache, this means that the cache has been archived or temporarily disabled by the cache owner (CO) or a community reviewer. When a cache has been archived or disabled, it should not be looked for.Archiving and disabling can happen for a number of reasons, such as:the cache needed maintenance and the CO is no longer active.the cache was found not to conform to geocaching community guidelinesthe CO would like to change the cache or place a different cache in the same locationthere is something happening at ground zero that restricts access to the cache

Firstly, it sounds like you are asking for general definitions, rather than differential definitions, which is problematic when the definitions are differential and context specific. Cache miss: not in cache, must be loaded from the original source Cache hit: was loaded from cache (no implication of what "type" of cache was hit). cold cache: The slowest cache hit possible. The actual loading mechanism depends on the type of cache (CPU cache could refer to an L2 (or L3) hit, disk cache could refer to a RAM hit on the drive, web cache could refer to a drive cache hit) hot cache: The fastest cache hit possible. Depends on mechanism described (CPU could be L1 cache, disk could be OS cache hit, web cache could be RAM hit in cache device) Warm cache: Anything between, like L2 when L1 is hot and L3 is cold. It is a less precise term and often used to imply "hot" when the performance is closer to "cold."

Same as L2 cache.On Apple Macintosh computers, the term RAM cache refers to a disk cache.

If you mean 'Cache' then it can mean 'mask', 'cover', and 'patch'.

external cache or level 2 or L2 cache

sram is used for cache for cache memory.

The other Name of RAM Cache is Disk Cache

The first Intel CPU to feature external cache was the Intel Pentium Pro. External cache is also referred to as L2 cache, while internal cache is called L1 cache.

Ythere are two types of cache 1) current cache 2) grandfathered cache There are different types of caches in both.

Cache is pronounce as "cash."

CPUs do have a cache (either L1, L2 or L3), but cache is not exclusively on the CPU.
