L3 cache disabled? (Core i5-3550)

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm so sorry for my ignorance about this subject. But I'm seeing in AIDA64 that my CPU has not enabled the L3 cache, and it should be enabled. I have a Intel Core i5 3550 processor, and the board is a ASUS P8Z77-V. In AIDA64 Extreme Extreme Edition (the last version) under (Computer / DMI / Caches / L3-Cache) it shows:

Cache Properties

Cache Properties

Type Internal

Status Disabled

Maximum Size 6144 KB

Installed Size 6144 KB

Error Correction None

Socket Designation L3-Cache

Anyone knows why? Thank you.

If anyone here using any ivy bridge cpu test.

You can check the L3 cache performance using AIDA64 Cache & Memory Benchmark (AIDA64 / main menu / Tools / Cache & Memory Benchmark). In case your processor have L3 cache enabled, you will see it evaluated there ;)
