Reasons to consider the
Intel Xeon 7030

Report a correction
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 32 vs 1 31 supports more CPUs in SMP configuration
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Slightly higher Maximum operating temperature 76 °C vs 72.6 °C Around 5% higher Maximum operating temperature
Lower annual home energy cost 39.75 $/year vs 41.29 $/year Around 5% lower annual home energy cost

Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 2.8 GHz Around 20% higher clock speed
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.98 GHz vs 2.8 GHz Around 80% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Significantly lower typical power consumption 112.55W vs 134.06W More than 15% lower typical power consumption
Newer Jan, 2011 vs Nov, 2005 Release date over 5 years later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.88 GHz vs 2.8 GHz Around 75% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 110.03 $/year vs 144.54 $/year Around 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
