Reasons to consider the
AMD Opteron 1224 SE

Report a correction
Significantly higher clock speed 3.2 GHz vs 2.2 GHz More than 45% higher clock speed
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
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Significantly more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Newer Aug, 2007 vs May, 2005 Release date over 2 years later
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
Higher Maximum operating temperature 55 °C vs 49 °C More than 10% higher Maximum operating temperature
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.41 GHz vs 2.66 GHz Around 30% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
