TLB is translation look-aside buffer.
This is part of N64 CPU.

Many games use this process, so disabling it in the game settings may cause a crash at some point (often very early in the game if not soon after boot).

There are also games that actually don't even use TLB at all, so if you disable it in game settings and can't seem to find a crash hang etc. in the game, you just optimized the game to be a little faster.

That's why the option is there is for speed where it is not needed. Turning it off isn't exactly accurate, but where it doesn't make a difference, it's for speed.

You don't mean "Large Compile Buffer"?
