There not the same model, there is the 560, which runs at 3.6Ghz with 1Mb of L2 Cache and then there is the 660 which also runs at 3.6Ghz and has 2Mb of cache.

Generally the more cache the better, if i were you i would get the 660 which has new technology in it, (clocks down when not in use too 1.8Ghz, has a more efficent architecture, and sometimes puts out less heat)

(L1 Cache)- Sometimes also known as primary or level 1 cache, is a small amount of high-speed memory that resides on or very close to the CPU. L1 Cache interacts with the CPU for most frequently requested instructions and data.
