    all very nice but what is an L3 cache? Those seem to use a lot of wattage not good when compairing to intel

    i really dont like it when the cpu brands use the level 3 cache word. if the cache is on the internal CPU PCB then its L1 cache, if its not then its L2 cache. L3 bah, tey think they invented the gokart or something -.-

    All cpu's have a L1 cache, it's usually very small, all cpu's then have a level 2 cache which is what you hear about most of the time, it's job is different to L1, but don't ask me how, i don't know specific details here.

    The L3 cache for AMD is a shared cache between all the cores, while it's LV2 cache is per core and not shared, more info here: http://www.pureoverclock.com/review.php?id=37&page=2

    so it has three levels of cache, all are there for a specific purpose, in this case AMD believe that two levels of cache per core and a third shared cache is the best option, at least for the architecture in queston.

    i get ur point, but i think you didnt get mine. i say if its on the pcb then call it l1, if its not then l2, sayin they shouldnt make up bimbo new names for no reason, saw the specification of the 2 l2's going in the l3, but still i dont see any use for it. i believe its just an "in ur face intel" thing, "we have L3, you dont".
    waiting for reviews to prove me wrong, untill then i keep to my bitching about the subject

    First of all what PCB? Don't see a printed circuit board anywhere on a CPU. But ok, I believe you meant to say on dye. So what do we call the different types of cache on dye then? L1 small, L1medium, L1large or something? The caches are all very different. L1 is a small cache usually split in two (instruction and data cache), this is the fastest. L2 is a larger, usually unified, getting data from here takes more time than from L1 and as I understand it L3 is so that the different cores have a place to put data where the other cores can get to it.
