Performance With Different Amounts Of Level 2 Cache

| Hardware Index | Basic Performance | QuickDraw Performance | SoftWindows Performance |

The graphs below represent a performance comparison with various amounts of L2 Cache installed on various computers. L2 Cache is a high performance RAM chip that come stock on some machines and can be added and upgraded on others. Testing was performed using MacBench. MacBench profiles popular software programs and applies these profiles to the various subsystems being tested. See this description of what MacBench tests and how. Longer bars equals faster performance. A zero score means there was no data for that test. Note the relative performance gain is greater on faster machines.
