 Detecting L2-Cache

Hi,

I'm currently developing an application that gives information
about the computers hardware.
Does anyone have a (Pascal) source or unit to detect L2-Cache and the
size.

There are two ways to detect the L2 cache size ...

1/ Ask the chipset
2/ Test the ram read/write speed for different block sizes

the 1/ is faster, but you must support ALL chipsets, so this is quite
tricky ... The 2/ is easier, but it may not be very accurate if the main
memory is very fast, or if the cache is quite slow ...

Bye ...
