Reasons to consider the
AMD Opteron 42DX EE

Report a correction
More l3 cache 8 MB vs 3 MB Around 2.8x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Lower typical power consumption 32.5W vs 41.44W More than 20% lower typical power consumption
More l3 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 1.5 MB/core Around 35% more l3 cache per core
Lower annual home energy cost 9.64 $/year vs 12.29 $/year More than 20% lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 35.04 $/year vs 44.68 $/year More than 20% lower annual commercial energy cost
