    Hey folks:

    I tried searching the archives, but couldn't find a topic on my answer.

    I believe that the current G4s come with 2MB L3 caches, but that my original G4/733 came with 1MB. Do you know if I can upgrade? If so, would it be worth doing and do you sell the module? Thanks!

    Sorry S,

    ?The level 3 on G4 cpu's is not a separate cache. It's on die for higher speed. Being higher speed I think the idea is that it can be smaller than we are used to seeing.

    ?The answer is no on modifying L3, it's architectural.
