Re: Lcache & Dcache Memory

Hi;

The way I understand it, cache memory is located in the CPU or very close to it. Therefore it is faster than ordinary ram. It is also much smaller. The CPU uses it to store the registers and some special locations. I have heard of L1 and L2 cache but I have not heard of Dcache. Go here for more.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Hi;

Did you look at the link I gave you that should explain it?
