CIS512 Week 4 Discussion Cache Memory and Multicore Processors Please respond to the following: From the e-Activity, determine the type of cache memory (i.e., Level 1, Level 2, or another type) that resides on a computer that you own or on a computer that you would consider purchasing. Examine the primary manner in which the type of cache memory that you have identified interfaces with the CPU and memory on your computer. Determine which type of cache memory is the most efficient, and provide one (1) example that depicts the manner in which the use of one (1) type of cache memory makes your computer processing more efficient than another. From the textbook and a few internet pages I’ve read it would seem to me that the Level 1 cache memory would be the fastest as it would allow me the ease of being able to work in multiple applications minus the slowness.
