Reasons to consider the
AMD Opteron 8346 HE

Report a correction
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly lower typical power consumption 44.69W vs 77.19W More than 40% lower typical power consumption
More l3 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
More threads 4 vs 2 Twice as many threads
Significantly lower annual commercial energy cost 48.18 $/year vs 83.22 $/year More than 40% lower annual commercial energy cost
Significantly lower annual home energy cost 13.25 $/year vs 22.89 $/year More than 40% lower annual home energy cost
Newer Sep, 2007 vs Aug, 2006 Release date over 1 years later
