Explain the difference between the cache memory and the buffer.

The cache memory aims to reduce the memory access time and thus increase your computer speed by storing frequently accessed data. A buffer, such as a printing buffer, is just a temporary memory storage that holds a queue of data to be used.

A key difference is that all the contents in the buffer will be used whereas some of the cache contents could never be accessed by a user.
