depends on what you're building comp for, if its is for gaming - you will not have a big increase in performance (1 - 2 %) with extra 2mb cache. If you're going to use it for video editing/rendering than you'll have as much as 10% gain in perf with 4mb.
Here is an article
on c2d 4mb vs. 2mb cache :wink:
Extra 2mb of cache?? What extra 2mb of cache.?
They both have 2mb of cache. Please try to actually read the question before replying to it. K?
LOL, the topic was originally posted as 4mb vs. 2mb cache, then it moved to "e6300 vs e6400 (price, oveclocking on air etc)". I explained to the guy that extra 2mb doesn't give you that much of a perf boost. Then, he decided to go with either e6300 or 6400 and it went from there.
Don't make silly comments
