Architecture/Cache
onboardThe L2 cache for Socket 7 CPUs is placed on the motherboard. It can vary between 512 and 2048 kByte depending on the motherboard product itself.
L3The AMD K6-III has got 256 kByte on-die (internal) L2 cache. The external cache on Socket 7 boards becomes then so-called L3 cache.
CacheMotherboard cache (L2 or L3) runs in-sync with the system bus. Therefore it is not dependent on the CPU clock such as on the Pentium III or AthlonThe K6-III cache frequency of 100 MHz refers to the L3 cache. The L2 on a K6-III is on die and runs at full speed.
