Gurutech heeft een korte preview gepost van de K7. Hier een stukje over de 128Kb grote L1 cache van de K7:
So what have we learned from these statistics? Well, the more L1 cache a CPU has, the faster it's going to be, because L1 cache is considerably faster than L2. But then, the more L2 cache a CPU has, the faster IT's going to be, because L2 cache is considerably faster than RAM. While the K7 has the same amount of L2 cache on it as the PIII, it has four times the L1 cache, which means faster performance.
