The standard SRAM chips are costly as _________
Explanation: As they require a large number of transistors, their cost per bit increases.
The drawback of building a large memory with DRAM is ______________
Explanation: The DRAM’s were used for large memory modules for a long time until a substitute was found.
To overcome the slow operating speeds of the secondary memory we make use of faster flash drives.
Explanation: To improve the speed we use flash drives at the cost of memory space.
The fastest data access is provided using _______
Explanation: The fastest data access is provided using registers as these memory locations are situated inside the processor.
The memory which is used to store the copy of data or instructions stored in larger memories, inside the CPU is called _______
Explanation: These memory devices are generally used to map onto the data stored in the larger memories.
The larger memory placed between the primary cache and the memory is called ______
Explanation: This is basically used to provide effective memory mapping.
The next level of memory hierarchy after the L2 cache is _______
Correct Answer :- d
Explanation : The next level of memory hierarchy after the L2 cache are Registers.
The last on the hierarchy scale of memory devices is ______
Explanation: The secondary memory is the slowest memory device.
In the memory hierarchy, as the speed of operation increases the memory size also increases.
Explanation: As the speed of operation increases the cost increases and the size decreases.
If we use the flash drives instead of the harddisks, then the secondary storage can go above primary memory in the hierarchy.
Explanation: The flash drives will increase the speed of transfer but still it wont be faster than primary memory.
