What is cache memory?..

Answer / v.vijayakumar

Cache memory is a small high-speed memory. It is used for
temporary storage of data & information between the main
memory and the CPU (center processing unit). The cache
memory is only in RAM.
Cache memory is random access memory (RAM) that a computer
microprocessor can access more quickly than it can access
regular RAM. As the microprocessor processes data, it looks
first in the cache memory and if it finds the data there
(from a previous reading of data), it does not have to do
the more time-consuming reading of data from larger memory.
