Front view of Intel Xeon 5300 E5330

Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon 5300 E5330

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 8 MB vs 1 MB 8x 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 0.5 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
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
