What’s the (real, practical, noticeable) advantage of enabling the cache?

its my understanding that the server caches info it gathers from the database. This allows less interaction with the database, allowing info to be displayed faster.... pages should build faster with the cache on and cause less strain on the server (which may not be noticeable until high volume traffic)
