Reasons to consider the
AMD Opteron 8356

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
Much lower typical power consumption 60.94W vs 96.69W More than 35% 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
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 65.7 $/year vs 104.24 $/year More than 35% lower annual commercial energy cost
Much lower annual home energy cost 18.07 $/year vs 28.67 $/year More than 35% lower annual home energy cost
Newer Apr, 2008 vs Aug, 2007 Release date 8 months later
