Depends on the given application whether 512kb or 1024kb L2 is better. I've noticed no difference in running either, performance wise, so it's probably down to less than 5%.

The 1024kb cores tend to go farther in mhz than the 512kb...even direct from AMD, the 512kb is 2.4ghz max, while the 1024kb is 2.8. maybe a leakage issue with the crossbar hidden in there...and why the 3.0ghz A64 isn't a likelyhood.

Here's a link for ya...
