Hi, all. Awhile back I read a post of a registry edit which makes sure the computer recognizes the full size of the L2 cache on Pentium M chips. I can't find it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
I read somewhere else that leaving this alone should allow proper auto-detect of the L2 cache size. The tweak is worth try, but I saw no performance increase with or without, so I assume the chip is reporting it to the OS properly.
Is this tweak absolutely necessary at all? How do I know if Windows recognizes the correct amount of my Dothan L2 cache? I mean, what it's just a placebo effect or something, cause I never heard of this problem before widely discussed at all.
I used to have this in the FAQ. I removed it for the reason that Fett pointed out, and lack of evidence that it actually does help performance. It is unecessary on the modern computer and if anything is a placebo solution...
