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 higher clock speed 2.8 GHz vs 1.73 GHz More than 60% higher clock speed
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
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.8 GHz vs 1.73 GHz More than 60% better overclocked clock speed (Water)

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much lower typical power consumption 36.56W vs 134.06W 3.7x lower typical power consumption
Supports trusted computing Yes vs No Somewhat common; Allows for safer, more reliable computing
Newer Jun, 2010 vs Nov, 2005 Release date over 4 years later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much lower annual home energy cost 10.84 $/year vs 39.75 $/year 3.7x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 39.42 $/year vs 144.54 $/year 3.7x lower annual commercial energy cost
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
