Here is a brief note on the Athlon cache speed. The tests were run at 1/3 cache speed as we did with the Kryotech 900 unit. The released Kryotech SuperG will be using a 1/2.5 divisor (we'll have updated performance numbers soon). Anyone who currently owns a 900 MHz Kryotech with 1/3 cache speed can send in their units to have it upgraded to the faster cache settings free of charge. Kryotech says that the performance of the cache going from 1/3 to 1/2.5 gains around 4% performance. We'll test this ourselves as soon as the testing is done.
