Pipelined Burst Cache ==>

Pipeline Burst Cache

<hardware, storage> (PB Cache) A synchronous cache built from pipelined SRAM.

A cache in which reading or writing a new location takes multiple cycles but subsequent locations can be accessed in a single cycle. On Pentium systems in 1996, pipeline burst caches are frequently used as secondary caches. The first 8 bytes of data are transferred in 3 CPU cycles, and the next 3 8-byte pieces of data are transferred in one cycle each.
