Does Geekbench stress test L3 cache size?

If so how and in which test is it most likely to be reflected?

I'm no programmer or computer scientist but I've heard that processor cache sizes can impact performance in certain applications such as advanced scientific modelling and high performance parallel or batch processing. Is this true?

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

    Geekbench's benchmarks utilize all levels of processor cache, and having a larger L3 cache will certainly increase performance.
