Intel I7 6950X Cache
Wondering what is Intel I7 6950X cache? Cache is really quick onboard CPU memory, much faster than RAM, which your processor requires to store data, that is about to be processed and used often. Intel I7 6950X cores and cache largely regulate its speed. It gives you fast access to CPU memory thus making it work faster. There are three types of cache- L1 cache, L2 Cache and L3 Cache.
Intel I7 6950X L1 Cache
Intel I7 6950X L1 cache is extremely fast cache but its value is relatively small. It is generally embedded in CPU.
The L1 cache count for Intel I7 6950X is 0.32 MB which is distributed in each core.
Intel I7 6950X L2 Cache
Intel I7 6950X L2 cache is an important part in this section of Intel I7 6950X cores and cache. Want to know how L2 cache works? It may be located on the CPU or on a separate chip so that the speed is not slowed by traffic on the main bus. Intel I7 6950X L2 cache size is more than Intel I7 6950X L1 cache.
The L2 cache count for Intel I7 6950X is 2.56 MB and also 0.26 MB/Core for each core.
Intel I7 6950X L3 Cache
Intel I7 6950X L3 cache is specially designed memory to improve the performance of Intel I7 6950X L2 Cache and Intel I7 6950X L1 Cache. Generally there is confusion in the relation between Intel I7 6950X cores and cache. In Intel I7 6950X processor, each core has its own dedicated L1 and L2 cache, but shares a common L3 Cache. L3 cache defines how good the processor is going to be for gaming purposes, which comes down to Intel I7 6950X graphics and memory.
The L3 cache count for Intel I7 6950X is 25.00 MB while per core it is 2.50 MB/Core.
