What CPU technology is designed to speed processing time by temporarily storing data, instructions, and/or results?

A) Hyperthreading

B) Multiple cores

C) 64-bit processing

D) Onchip cache

E) Asgard core

The answer: D) Onchip cache

CPU caches allow for increased performance because of their speed and because they are generally located directly on the CPU chip.

CPUs are extremely complex components, and their inner-workings can contain a mix of memory caches, multiple processor cores, and advanced queuing mechanisms. In this video, you’ll learn how these technologies work together to create today’s modern central processing units.
