Benefits of an L3 cache
Hey I was just wondering how much benefit you get from having a processor with a L3 cache. It seems like there is a definite price difference between the Athlon IIs and Phenom IIs and the only difference I can see is that L3.

It depends on the application. In games, you can expect anywhere from 5% to 20% more performance, which is far from negligible. Tom's Hardware did a good article on the subject: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/athl...,2416.html
