I don't think you're going to get that any time soon. For L2, Gulftown is listed as 6 x 256 KB...so 256 KB per core. I know you'd like to fit everything in the cache, but you still have to admit these cpus are really taking performance to new levels. Can you estimate how much faster a core could do an LL iteration if it didn't have to communicate with main memory? That would be interesting.
