L2 is where most of the data is stored, I believe L1 is generally memory or something. Not to sure. There's even L3 cache out now.

No way, the Core 2 Duo E6600 is probably the best price-to-performance CPU out in the market. It won the best Product for Price award twice on NewEgg.com. It's a DAMN good CPU.

The L1 cache is supposed to be small. All processors have a tiny L1 cache. It's smaller, but faster than the L2 cache.

AMD procs have usually 64kb+64kb. Will the smaller cache from Intel hurt it any?

Default Re: cpu cache

no my amd athlon xp 2000+ has 64 and 256kb
thel2 cache is something that usually gets made lower on budget processors like intel celerons and the amd semprons

I would Google CPU architecture and find out what L1 Cache is that way.
