1) Order the following components in order of their speed starting from the fastest, and ending with the slowest: CD, Random Access Memory (RAM), Tape, Cache.
2) A computer system may have an extremely fast process, and extremely fast memory, yet the performance of the computer may be slow. Why?
thank you for your time!
1. Cache is the fastest memory (aside from registers, which is not on the list).
2. By what data go from memory to the CPU and vice-versa? Does a human have access directly to the memory?
