Cache memory has a slightly higher access latency as it is located closer to the CPU than main memory. Main memory has a higher access latency compared to cache memory as it is located outside the CPU. Magnetic disk has an even higher access latency as it is a secondary storage device. Magnetic tape has the highest access latency among the given options as it is a tertiary storage device and generally has slower access times compared to other storage devices.
