Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon 5128

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 1 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much more l2 cache per core 2 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 8x more l2 cache per core
Much lower typical power consumption 32.5W vs 68.25W 2.1x lower typical power consumption
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Much lower annual home energy cost 9.64 $/year vs 20.24 $/year 2.1x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 35.04 $/year vs 73.58 $/year 2.1x lower annual commercial energy cost
