For audio use is the 2mb L3 cache and slight speed improvement worth the extra £160.......

what is the realworld difference between 1 or 2 mb L3 cache?

thank you.

enjoy reading it .... it explains in detail mainly the differences between SDR and DDR type cache but also states very clearly at the end that it is not so much the type of L3 cache that matters but the size of it does .... to some extend .... they mention improvements of up to 7% in Benchmark tests between 1MB and 2MB L3 cache (measurable but hardly noticable in day to day use)

Up to you I guess if that's worth the extra money ...


(there's a bunch of other very technical links in that paper)
