A CPU cache is a cache used by the central processing unit of a computer to reduce the average time to access memory. The cache is a smaller, faster memory which stores copies of the data from the most frequently used main memory locations. As long as most memory accesses are cached memory locations, the average latency (measure of time delay experienced in a system, the precise definition of which depends on the system and the time being measured.) of memory accesses will be closer to the cache latency than to the latency of main memory.

When the processor needs to read from or write to a location in main memory, it first checks whether a copy of that data is in the cache. If so, the processor immediately reads from or writes to the cache, which is much faster than reading from or writing to main memory

Most modern desktop and server CPUs have at least three independent caches: an instruction cache to speed up executable instruction fetch, a data cache to speed up data fetch and store, and a translation lookaside buffer used to speed up virtual-to-physical address translation for both executable instructions and data.

Cache Memory:
it is the temporary memory which store the recently closed applications.
For eg.if ur watching a movie due to some work u may be closing that application and u may shut down ur systemafter completing the work u need to open that application itself so u need not go to mycomputer and open that drive which it contains,just simply go to my documents and open recent documents.At this time the memor wil be stored in the cache Source:
