AMD's faulty L1 caches?

— 12:00 PM on March 8, 2001

Besides linking Dr. Damage's great P4 vs. Athlon performance comparison, The Register points to this piece which lists a number of fatal exception errors that you can experience in Windows. This bit is puzzling:

If you are running with an AMD chip, you should also note that there have been quite a number of reports on faulty L1 cache (the cache on the chip). Go in your computers BIOS (see your handbook for instructions), and disable the Level 1 cache. If this resolves your problems, consider buying a new CPU.
Anybody experience this problem?
