That's right, Intel has doubled the cache on their Xeon line so there is now a total of 2MB. A link to the article here: http://zdnet.com.com/2100-1103-964329.html

Now who wouldn't want one of those? :)

Anybody without $2000 USD to spare? :p

It's L3 cache, not L2...different from the older P3 Xeons that sported 2mb of L2 cache.

Backside or L3 cache has a higher latency time to the CPU than L2 does.

Hmmm... I will stick with XP1600+s thanks :). Dual Xeons would empty my bank account, and thats just for the CPUs!
