Keeping this in view, do SSD drives have cache?
A flash-based SSD typically uses a small amountof DRAM as a cache, similar to the cache in Harddisk drives. Data is not permanently stored in thecache. One SSD controller manufacturer, SandForce,does not use an external DRAM cache on their designs,but still achieve very high performance.
One may also ask, what is NVMe cache? NVMe (non-volatile memory express) is a hostcontroller interface and storage protocol created to accelerate thetransfer of data between enterprise and client systems andsolid-state drives (SSDs) over a computer's high-speed PeripheralComponent Interconnect Express (PCIe) bus.
Just so, is a bigger hard drive cache better?
In a nutshell increased cache means decreseadloading time. The cache works by recoganising informationused frquently and storing it so it can be accesed faster, largercache more information can be stored in it. So to answeryour questin yes 64mb would be better than32mb.
What is the purpose of cache and buffer?
A buffer is a region of memory used totemporarily hold data while it is being moved from one place toanother within a computer.while a cache is a temporarystorage area where frequently accessed data can be stored for rapidaccess.
