Thread cache: explanation needed

Ah hello.

Can someone please provide an explanation of/give references to recommended books I can read:

1) What exactly a thread-cache is, and how it differs from a processor cache
2) How we can have "cache misses"
3) This SO answer, specifically the last paragraph about how "locks typically reduce contention".

I have tried googling for this but cannot find anything.

(Hopefully I have chosen the best zones for this, had a bit of a hard time deciding:))

TIA

I wished I could, but as for new EE policy, SO does not exist. But I guess it is safe to say that while there are some truisms in it, it's on point ;o)

>> new EE policy

Have I missed that?  Could you provide a link with this on at all?
