Reasons to consider the
Intel E5-2609V4

Report a correction
Significantly more l3 cache 20 MB vs 8 MB 2.5x more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Supports more RAM 1,572,864 MB vs 32,768 MB Supports 48x more RAM
Significantly newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 22 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More cores 8 vs 4 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
More l3 cache per core 2.5 MB/core vs 2 MB/core 25% more l3 cache per core
Newer Jan, 2016 vs May, 2014 Release date over 1 years later
