One point is that disabling just L2 changes the speed only marginally regarding to DOS stuff. L1 has much higher impact and this means it is also more useful. So the tunability by switching L2 is somewhat limited.
You're right. It has a high impact (the L1), but nevertheless disabling the L2 is not less important due to flexibility to play not few sensitive games... http://www.vogonswiki.com/index.php/List_of_C … sensitive_games
For example, playing Syndicate is quite well with only L1disable, but for Wing Commander it's way to fast, here i definitely need the L2disable. For me, the K6 series is predestined for using the full capability of changing multipliers and caches...
