Differences What are the advantages of each

Front view of AMD Opteron 2439 SE

Reasons to consider the
AMD Opteron 2439 SE

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 3 MB vs 1 MB 3x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Significantly higher clock speed 2.8 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 55% higher clock speed
More l3 cache 6 MB vs 0 MB Compared to all cpus, 6 MB l3 cache is just OK
Has virtualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
More cores 6 vs 1 5 more cores; run more applications at once
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Significantly more l3 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 1 MB/core l3 cache per core is just OK
Newer Jul, 2009 vs May, 2004 Release date over 5 years later
More threads 6 vs 1 5 more threads
