Default Cache, 3mb to 6mb, discernable difference in laptop?

is that a noticeable difference with 1066 fsb?

what other specs does the cache size interact with? where will it bottleneck? and about how much is enough for different benchmarks processes?

thanks in advance,

A CPU cache is a cache used by the central processing unit of a computer to reduce the average time to access memory.

In a nutshell, more cache means faster performance.
