Reasons to consider the
AMD Opteron 1210 HE

Report a correction
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
More l3 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 0.5 MB/core l3 cache per core is just OK
