While much has changed since then, the same basic parameters remain
  - cache line size

In 96 we had 32 byte cache lines. These days 64-128 are common,
with some 256 byte cache line systems around.


Good point.
I believe that the most common line size is 64 bytes for L1 cache.

If I recall, G4 chips are 32 bytes, and G5s are 128 bytes. Most current x86 chips are 64 bytes though.
