cache on asus a7n8x-x mobo

  pookie 12:23 29 Nov 2004


above mobo, windows xp home edition, 1 GB ddr ram, 3 Ghz athlon, onborad sound, x800pro grpahics.

System seems fine and stable. Benchmarks are approx what they should be.

However, I opened 3d 2003 benchmark at weekend and noticed a 'detals', or something tab. In this it listed all hardware details on pc. In mobo section it said something like level 1 cache 128, level 2 cache 512. I don't know what these mean but should they both be the same? anything else i should change/think about?

cheers as always

pookie, the L1 and L2 cache aren't on your motherboard but relate to caches that are on you cpu.

You say you have a 3Ghz Athlon(I assume you mean an Athlon XP 3000+), these cache sizes are correct for that cpu.
