Hello,
Since I learn c++ by myself I would like to know more about how computers exactly work. I was searching for some books, videos, but mostly found just "Introduction to Computer Science", "Basics of how computers work" etc. I would like to learn some advanced stuff like, how exactly CPU cache works, what does exactly mean "listening to port" (is there some code constantly running in CPU which sends signal to port XY and wait for something to happen?), how exactly interupting works etc.. Can you recomend me some books, youtube channels, webpages etc that could help my self study?
Thank you :)

As a first year undergraduate (some years ago...), I learned a lot from "Computer Organization & Design: The Harware/Software Interface" by Patterson and Hennessy. There may well be better alternatives, but it sounds like that's the sort of thing you're after. Look up the authors!
