Why is L1 cache no longer listed in some processor specification overviews?

...such as the Core 2 Duo to i7 series?

Hi!

Because of its very small size and because of today's Intel® Smart Cache, L1 is no longer listed among the specs of the recent processor models, but this does mean it's not there on the processor.

See the following URL video demo for more details on Intel® Smart Cache:

You can alternatively refer to the following white paper:
