Storm3D.com heeft een artikel gebouwd rondom de AMD K7. Er staat best wel handig spul in, als je op zoek bent naar K7 info zou ik 'm ff gaan lezen. Hier een stukje over de L1 en L2 cache van de K7:
The K7 has 128KB of 2-way set associative L1 cache, split into a 64KB instruction cache and a 64KB data cache. This is amazingly large when you consider it. It is four times as big as the Pentium III's L1 cache and twice as big as the K6-III's L1 cache. In fact, it is just as big as the Celeron A's level 2 cache!
The K7 also is capable of supporting various amounts of L2 cache at different speeds. It will be capable of anywhere from 512KB to 8MB of cache, with speeds ranging from 1/3 to full speed. (Actually, the 1/3 number was not mentioned in the talk, but it's been confirmed in enough other places that it is almost definitely true.) The possibility of including L2 cache on-chip was mentioned, but since there is already 128KB of L1 cache, there would probably need to be at least 512KB of L2 cache, and that isn't really reasonable with current technology. The support for high amounts of cache will be very appealing to server vendors and probably place the K7 in a great position against the Intel Xeon chips.
