Ok, I see!

I do not think you really need L3 for anything in case of just pure MC
simulation, unless your board structure is prohibitively large?

i7-920 has just four cores. And the benchmarks I have seen had been
_far_ from clearly in favor even of the i7 iterations newer than 920.
Overally, it seems to boil down to the particular workload. So I'm
really curious.
