Memory Bank

Example: "The program was designed to store cached data in a memory bank for easy access."

A memory bank is an individual section of data stored in a computer's memory. It typically contains data that only needs to be stored temporarily and is commonly used as a memory cache. Memory banks are ordered consecutively, which provides easy access to individual items stored in RAM.
