Where may SRAM be preferrable to DRAM?

Thanks for any help.

Static Random Access Memory: a form of RAM that retains its data without the constant refreshing that DRAM requires. SRAM is generally preferable to DRAM because it offers faster memory access times, but it is also more expensive to manufacture because it contains more electrical components.

SRAM is preferable for register files L1/L2 cache

DRAM is preferable for standalone memory chips
