    Default Explain cached memory?

    Hello guys,

    Can anyone explain cached memory for me? many thanks in advance.

    I am using 64 bit windows 8 beta and have noticed in task manager that 28% of my ram is being used. and with further looking I noticed most of this ram was under cache. my question is that can anyone explain the cached memory for me ?

    any help in this would be highly appreciated.

    Default Re: Explain cached memory?

    Cache memory is extremely fast memory that is built into a computer’s 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.
