near memory

near memory

Random access memory (RAM) close to the CPU. Contrast with "far memory," which is farther away from the CPU. Near memory may refer to the cache memory in the CPU chip or to memory inside the CPU package. In all cases, near memory is closest to the CPU, and far memory is at a greater distance.
