VR-Zone reports the upcoming quad-core 65nm Kentsfield processor from Intel will feature 2x 4MB L2 cache.
Kentsfield is slated for release in Q1 2007 and will compete against AMD K8L architecture. Intel refuses to comment which is better although they are confident Conroe will be leading in performance from second half of this year. The successor to Kentsfield, a Quad Core processor slated for later date will have 8MB of shared L2 cache. Intel is currently working with game developers to improve performance on multi-core processors.
