Die englische Wikipedia enthält noch etwas zur Geschichte des Begriffs:

| Use of the word "cache" in the computer context originated in
| 1967 during preparation of an article for publication in the IBM
| Systems Journal. The paper concerned an exciting memory improvement
| in Model 85, a latecomer in the IBM System/360 product line. The
| Journal editor, Lyle R. Johnson, pleaded for a more descriptive
| term than "high-speed buffer"; when none was forthcoming, he
| suggested "cache." The paper was published in early 1968, the
| authors were honored by IBM, their work was widely welcomed and
| subsequently improved upon, and "cache" soon became standard usage
| in computer literature.
