    cpu preference pane -pb 667 g4-level3 cache?

    Hey all - Just went into my preferences and noticed a new pane called "CPU". No idea how long it's been there, but being a speed freak, I decided to check it out. I opened it up, and noticed that level3 cache was set to none. I check my profiler, which states that I have 1mb of level3 cache, so...

    Ok - here's on for y'all - I have an 8500 w/g4 card running os9, and a powerbook g3 with X.
