Processor speed vs L2 cache 

by on April 6, 2010

Q: I had a computer that stopped working while it was under warranty. Instead of fixing the computer the manufacturer sent me a new computer. Most of the items on the new computer look to be better than the old computer that it replaced but I have a question about the processors. The old computer had an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7500 (2.2GHz/800MhzFSB, 4M L2 Cache) and the new one has an Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 (2.53GHz/1068Mhz FSB/3M L2 Cache). Is the increase in speed and front side bus going to make up for the 1MB less L2 cache?

A: First lets cover what L2 cache is. L2 cache or level2 cache is a method for storing data closer to the processor to speed things up. The processor in your computer is a lot faster than the RAM in your computer so in order for your system to run at its best computer engineers came up with Level1 (L1), Level2 (L2), and Level3 (L3) cache to help speed things up by having small amounts of fast memory next to the processor.

Will 1MB of L2 cache make a big difference in how well a processor performs? 

by on April 4, 2010

Q: My old computer, still under warranty, died a slow and horrible death. the company sent me a new one, and all looks the same or better except the processor. The old one is an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7500 (2.2GHz/800MhzFSB, 4M L2 Cache) and the new one is an Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 (2.53GHz/1068Mhz FSB/3M L2 Cache). Is it really going to make that much of a difference. What do you think?
