    Hi there,

    I am trying to have a better understanding of how memory technologies, such as CPU registers & CPU caches, hard disk drives, RAM etc, affect the performance of OS.

    How can an operating system use a combination of these memory technologies, with their varying speeds, capacities and costs to achieve overall good performance at acceptable cost?

    Would appreciate if anyone can provide me with some insights :shy:

    Every program use the different resources, and memory space. Memory management is done by operating system. Thus the memory size, speed definitely affects the OS performance.
