virtual memory vs cache memory

battle of the memorys

what is virtual memory?

your probably wondering what the hell is virtual memory and why you need to know it?


well today i will teach you

If your computer lacks the random access memory (RAM) needed to run a program your cpu will dip into your hardrive for space to run the program.there are many disadvantages to it such as using your hardrive space but there is some advantages such as stop making your computer laggy...this feature is a must in everyday computers

Cache Memory

now to learn cache memory


Cache memory, also called CPU memory, is RAM that a computer microprocessor can access more quickly than it can access regular RAM

in English it is something which is stored there from previously viewing it but its not downloaded and can be more quickly accessed

advantage; view pages you already viewed faster

disadvantage; Not all devices use this feature to its full potential makng it pointless

in my opinion cache memory is better as it dosent take up your hardrive space as that space can be used for somehing else
