No-Write Allocate

No-Write Allocate caches do not load memory into cache during write-miss scenarios. Rather, NWA cache protocols write back directly to main memory locations. This method of cache, sometimes called Write Around, is used in design with write-through cache design and ideal for operations where large blocks of memory are being written.
