I've been considering the AMD Athalon 64 X2 proc with its 1GB L2 cache clocking at 2000 Mhz. The other 64 X2 procs have a 512MB L2 cache but some go up to 2200 & 2400 Mhz. When comparing the AMD 64 X2 procs in the 2000 to 2400 Mhx range, is the size of the L2 cache more significant than the extra Mhz when trying to get the most performance?
wow 1gb? holy sh!t, just kidding everyone makes mistakes... its 1mb but its really only like a4% increase for the same clock speed... i don't rember the arcticle that i saw it in but i'm sure i could find it if i had to.
