Reasons to consider the
AMD Opteron 6262 HE

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 16 MB vs 2 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much more l3 cache 16 MB vs 1 MB 16x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
More cores 16 vs 2 14 more cores; run more applications at once
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 4 vs 1 3 supports more CPUs in SMP configuration
More threads 16 vs 2 14 more threads
More l3 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l3 cache per core
Newer Nov, 2011 vs May, 2010 Release date over 1 years later
