When the memory hierarchy was not implemented in the computer systems, the data transfer rate from main memory to the CPU registers was very slow.
Due to this, there was a significant degradation in the performance of the computer systems.
Memory hierarchy is organising the memory in such a way to reduce the access time between Main Memory and CPU registers.
