SRAM

 

Is SRAM the only form of Cache memory and Is it known as CPU Cache?

 

and does SRAM have any physical presences on the motherboard or is it within CPU?

Are you just using us to answer homework questions?

 

I can respect that.

 

 

No it's not the only type of cache memory, some older CPUs used DRAM. I believe early Intel Pentium and IBM PowerPC chips, before DRAM started getting too slow.

SRAM isn't usually on motherboards nowadays since it's much larger physically and much more expensive than an equivalent capacity of DRAM, but it used to be on, once again, old computers. For instance the Commodore VIC-20 or Sinclair ZX80, or game consoles like the NES.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So there's no more SRAM because some websites are stating that SRAM is within the CPU?

 

No, I'm using it to understand my homework then I can apply this knowledge in the classroom and thank you for your help
