What type of memory is most commonly associated with a CPU cache?
A) Read Only Memory
B) Static RAM
C) Synchronous DRAM
D) Double Data Rate 3 (DDR3) SDRAM
E) I don’t need memory, I have address book favorites
The answer: B) Static RAM
Static RAM (SRAM) is very fast memory that does not need to be periodically refreshed to maintain its data. The speed of Static RAM makes it a good choice for high-speed CPU caching.
