AMD processor feature performance tested, dizzying array of mixing and matching

by Rafael Hernandez on July 29, 2010 · 0 comments

AMD’s way of segmenting their processor market and pricing structure has lead to a lot of choices for consumers but it gets downright confusing when you’re choosing between fewer cores and more cache or more cores and fewer cache.

Of course more intrepid individuals have taken the time to document the performance differences between processors, presumably running at the same clock speed, featuring 2 cores with 1MB of L2 cache per core or 3 cores with 512KB of cache per core. More cores should equal more performance across the board right? Some interesting results depending on how you’ll be using your next budget machine build.
