Front view of Intel E3-1240V5

Reasons to consider the
Intel E3-1240V5

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.5 GHz vs 2.1 GHz More than 65% higher clock speed
Higher turbo clock speed 3.9 GHz vs 3.3 GHz Around 20% higher turbo clock speed
Significantly newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 22 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l3 cache 8 MB vs 4 MB 2x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
Newer Oct, 2015 vs Jul, 2013 Release date over 2 years later
