    Note: This is a complete cut 'n paste from another post in a similar thread

    The difference between the Barton and Tbred? The extra cache, thats it.

    Take a look at these die shots:



    The first is a Tbred core, note the two blocks at the bottom. Thats lvl2 cache. The 2nd pic is of a Barton core note the only difference is the extra cache.

    Performance wise, the extra cache does almost nothing for the Athlon. IMHO its not worth the cost. Grab a cheap 2200+ Tbred for ~$130AU or a 2400+ Tbred for ~$150AU and overclock it, the extra mhz will do far more for performance than the cache will.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    At the stock speed, the 2600+ will be faster than the 2500+ the extra cache in the Bartons does almost nothing for it
