Don't believe everything you read on IRC. He was thinking Triton I.
Triton II will happily cache lots more than 64mb if you have enough tag.
On a Tomcat I|II|III (popular Triton II board), you can cache up to 64mb
by default, or 512mb if you buy/install an extra tag chip.
If you had 96mb on a Triton I, the last 1/3 of your RAM would not be
cached, and if you actually used that RAM, things would possibly slow
down.
