Advantages of cache memory

Advantages of cache memory:

1. Cache (pronounced cache) memory is extremely fast memory that is built into a computer central processing unit (CPU), or located next to it on a separate chip. The CPU uses cache memory to store instructions that are repeatedly required to run programs, improving overall system speed. 

2. The advantage of cache memory is that the CPU does not have to use the motherboard system bus for data transfer. Whenever data must be passed through the system bus, the data transfer speed slows to the motherboard capability. The CPU can process data much faster by avoiding the bottleneck created by the system bus.
