How to enable L3 cache on Athlon II CPUs

Posted on Thursday, November 26 2009 @ 04:26:17 CET by

Asian tech site Inpai has written an article on enabling the L3 cache on Athlon II X3 processors. This is useful if you have a chip with a broken fourth core but working L3 cache. You can check it out over here, they also published lots of benchmarks to compare the performance.
In fact, authors method is only for particular situation.We all know that tri-core processors actually are a quad-core processors which shielded off a core,the core which shielded off always has quality problems .Of course we does not exclude AMD do it because of marketing strategy, deliberately allow some good to switch off one core of quad core processors to sell.we think it is not strange.As a result,there will be two situations:If you are lucky ,you will buy a tri-core cpu which just been shielded off a core .After crack can become a normal operation quad-core processor;if bad luck,the turned off core had indeed problem even it can be cracked ,you maybe can not stable operation even can not get into OS.
