Reasons to consider the
Intel Itanium 2 9152

Report a correction
Much more l3 cache per core 12 MB/core vs 2.5 MB/core More than 4.8x more l3 cache per core
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 4 vs 1 3 supports more CPUs in SMP configuration
Significantly more l3 cache 24 MB vs 15 MB 60% more l3 cache; more data can be stored in the l3 cache for quick access later
Much lower typical power consumption 84.5W vs 121.88W More than 30% lower typical power consumption
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.33 MB/core More than 3x more l2 cache per core
Much lower annual home energy cost 25.05 $/year vs 36.13 $/year More than 30% lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 91.1 $/year vs 131.4 $/year More than 30% lower annual commercial energy cost
