Re: Is registry's L2 cache 'disabled' by default in Vista/Server 2
Quaoar, thanks a lot. Maybe we'll hear from Sedna next....
This is very interesting. Could you wager a guess about whether the chipset
driver didn't install correctly / has a bug? Or is the L2 cache usage
probably fine, and simply doesn't show up in that registry key?
Any advice on which Intel forums to take this question to?
