Indy R4600: no secondary cache?

Indy R4600: no secondary cache?

Post by Andres Kru » Sat, 19 Aug 1995 04:00:00




   hinv from an Indy R4600 doesn't repart a secondary unified cache.
   Does the CPU not have one?  

The MIPS R4600 CPU does not come with secondary cache
(see http://www.mips.com). SGI has apparently built some
L2 cache hardware around it and they call such a CPU R4600SC.
You can get Indies with (R4600SC) or without (R4600PC) this
secondary cache. If 'hinv' sais you haven't got one,
well.. that's true then..
