Old computers or workstations with cache memory?

Gould made a number of machines which had a two way set associative
cache. The Gould 9000, 8600, and 67 all had this style of cache memory.
The 9000 also had an expandable cache which they called shadow memory
that worked by overlaying a block of DRAM.

I don't know for sure the dates of these machines, but I think only the
8600 was pre 83, possibly mid to late 82.
