Guys how much of a difference does l2 cache have on ppd?
I have sitting here an athlon ii x2 220 and a x2 240
Both have a stock vcore of 1.4v and both hit 3.5ghz easy on stock volts.
Price for both are the same. I borrowed both from 2 different frieneds. They told me I can use them,overclock them and test them out and see which I like better before I pay them.
Both seem to run the same temps,both overclock the same for 24/7 use.
So the question goes back to, how big of a difference does l2 cache make?
BTW upping the clock speed from 2.8ghz to 3.5ghz took ~30mins off of the time it takes per-task to get done. Does that seem right? (this is on the X2 220)
