    Does the retina MBP 2.7GHz configuration come with 6MB or 8MB cache ?

    I notice all other laptop brand 2.7GHz iv bridge processor is 8MB but on apple website, it show 6MB.

    The new mobile powerhouse.
    This notebook has the power to do amazing things. Third-generation Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge processors with a state-of-the-art 22-nanometer single-die microarchitecture provide the fastest quad-core performance ever in a notebook. Hyper-Threading technology allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core. And with speeds up to 2.7GHz, 6MB of shared L3 cache, and Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.7GHz, these processors are great for running professional applications like Aperture and Final Cut Pro. They also support up to 16GB of superfast 1600MHz memory. Which means the all-new MacBook Pro is ready to take on whatever you can dream up.

    Did you really have to make a thread for this when you asked the same question in another thread?

    Yes it's 8MB cache.

    Take a look at Intel's site -- it's a 3820QM that the high-end rMBP has, with 8MB of cache. Apple's site says 6MB of cache as it's only referring to the 2.6GHz model (which is the 3720QM).
