This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Are you talking about CPU cache? Which one (L1, L2, etc)? Do you need to get these values programatically (ie: through the Windows API)? – NullUser Aug 17 '10 at 4:24
Unless you need to do this programmatically, this question is better asked on SuperUser. – Paul Sasik Aug 17 '10 at 4:28

You can use Cpu-z to find all the relevant information about your processor's cache. Look for the "Cache" section in the Cpu-z's main tab.
