The Intel® Processor Identification Utility is a software tool intended to help identify the features and frequencies of Intel® Processors by providing the user with information about the processor in the tested system. One feature identified by the utility is the cache size. The highest level of reported cache is displayed on the first tab of the utility, while additional detected cache information is detailed on the third tab. Although this utility is capable of determining actual cache sizes, it does not attempt to determine any expected cache sizes, and leaves this task up to the user to verify. Due to the layout of the reported processor information in the utility, it may appear as if the expected cache size is missing, but the utility is working as designed.
Detailed processor information such as product features and specifications can be found at ark.intel.com.
The help file included with the Intel Processor Identification Utility talks about the reported but not expected cache sizes. The help file can either be accessed from within the tool by selecting “Help" and "Contents,” or by browsing to the installed program files folder and selecting the “Intel(R) Processor ID Utility Help” link.
