When i am running a stock market applications, where the data is being pulled from the exchange servers and is continually refreshing, does it goes to the hard disk or it just stays in the RAM and also gets refreshed within the RAM?
Wouldn't it also be bouncing around the cache on the processor. The extra cache ( 12mb intel 775 for ex. ) vs lower cache chips would keep the information there before swapping to the system ram or swapping to the HD no ? Know what I mean ? Is this correct ?
