Modern computers have so many layers of storage. You have the registers where the processor stores its work, then a few levels of progressively slower and larger caches, your main system memory, and finally the ponderous primary storage of the system. All of this exists because primary storage is so slow that, without... Read more...
Have you made the jump to Windows 11? While there aren't yet any "killer apps" for Microsoft's new OS, it's easy to understand (as a fellow enthusiast) the desire to try out the latest thing.
