Intel Conroe Cache Performance

Posted on Wednesday, June 06 2007 @ 08:17:35 CEST by

Currently Intel has a stack of Core 2 Duo dual-core desktop processors on offer and what was once just a family of four, has now become many more. The problem is, while they vary in price, there is also a very big difference between them all in terms of performance. This is because Intel has not only created a range of processors that operate at different frequencies, they also feature different front side bus speeds and L2 cache capacities. Today we are going to compare the 1MB, 2MB and 4MB L2 cache processors at the same frequency using the same front side bus...

Clearly the more cache the better when it comes to the Core 2 Duo processors. This was evident in games such as Far Cry, which saw a 31% rise in performance when moving from the 1MB to the 4MB L2 cache. Other games such as X3: Reunion also saw a 28% performance increase for the 4MB cache over the 1MB cache processor. Clearly those looking for maximum performance are going to give the E4000 and the new E2000 series a miss.
