    Default Does an AMD quad benefit much from L3 cache?

    Would appear that it does but not by much!
    I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

    nearly 20% in some cases, but nothing in others? i think this is more of a case of software not yet taking full advantage of the hardware available.

    given the choice i would rather have it and not need it than need it later and not have it.

    good read that tho, and interesting too.
