The CPU stores data where the data is needed, to keep track of where it needs to go next. The CPU stores instructions where they are executed and where the data is stored. There are two types of storage: registers and cache memory. Registers store instructions that have been executed recently so that those executions can be repeated when needed, which reduces the need for more expensive computation time from slower main memory or disks. Cache memory provides a temporary place for frequently accessed information; this speeds up access because finding nearby information takes less time than going back to where it was found before.
In the CPU, where is data stored?
Instructions are executed where they are found and then saved where necessary so that if they need to be executed again (due to an error) they will already be at hand. But for more common operations like arithmetic addition, this might not happen since those types of instructions would have been copied into registers long ago. How do you know which place has your most recent work done on it? There’s also something called a “stack” where new data is pushed to the top of a stack, and old information is pulled from the bottom.
Main memory or disks may provide temporary storage for frequently accessed information like programs you’re currently working on, files being edited, etc.
In most computers today there are actually two different types of cache memories: one within each CPU core (L0) and another part of the system where data is cached (L0).
The CPU cache memory can be also found on the motherboard near where the central processing unit (CPU) is located. A cache memory stores copies of sections of information that are likely to be used again and brings them close to where they will next need to be accessed. In a computer, this means faster access because it’s right there without having you go looking for it elsewhere in your PC or network storage device.
A “Level-One” (L0) cache has a big enough capacity to store all instructions and their operands if they’re not currently being used by other parts of the computer such as disk drives or main memory devices called RAMs. When new instructions are needed from the Level-One cache, they’re fetched and loaded into the caches where they can be used or stored for later use.
The CPU has a special section of memory that stores data in an array called registers. Registers are where many processor instructions operate on their operands to produce results. The number and type of registers are different among the various CPUs. For instance, some processors have two register files; one with 32 general-purpose integer storage locations and another file with 16 floating-point operations (FP) plus 32 integers.”
where does the CPU store its computations?
it has a special area where it stores data in group called registers where most processor instructions work on its operands to produce result numbers and types of them are different depending on which CPU they’re using for example if there are two register files then the first one would be having 32 storage space forints while another one would be having 16 FP +32 ints. data can also be used as input for computations where it’s stored in memory where it has to be accessed before being used for calculation
Instruction is given by the user and tells the CPU what operation to perform, where data comes from registers, or its temporary storage.
Temporary data usually just stores only during the computation process because after completion either becomes permanent data where it gets stored in registers or it is discarded.
The CPU storage where data, instructions, and computation are stored in the registers or it can be temporary where it’s accessed before being processed. CPU also has two register files that give different result numbers depending on the type of calculation required by the user as in forints vs FP+32 ints. Data is used as input by instruction where it goes into a memory to be accessed during the computations process where temporary data only stores temporarily not permanently. After processing either become permanent where it gets saved in registers or discarded after completion of calculations.
